The 9 Secrets of Pre-IPO Investing.

Growthink, a leading investment bank to emerging companies, announces the release of an in-depth white paper titled "The 9 Secrets of Pre-IPO Investing."

The report provides key tips and advice for making profitable early stage investments in private companies, based on Growthink's decade of experience advising more than 1,000 early stage ventures.

Growthink is releasing the investment guide in the midst of strong "angel" investing activity in the United States. In 2007, there were approximately 234,000 active individual angel investors and approximately 49,500 private companies which received funding from individual investors.

Growthink, citing 20 years of data collected by Thomson Financial, asserts that early and seed stage private company investing has over the long-term, outperformed all other investment classes -- with average annual returns of over 20.6%.

According to Growthink, early stage angel investment can produce stratospheric returns on investment. The report cites the famous example of Google's first private investor, Andy Bechtolsheim, who wrote a $100,000 check to Google in 1998 when it was an early stage private company. As of March 2008, this $100,000 is worth approximately $1.5 billion dollars.

Growthink's report provides an overview of pre-IPO investing, including its benefits and risks, and key advice for successfully investing in early stage private companies.

Specifically, the report provides expert insight regarding:

  • How to Find, Evaluate, and Profit from Early Stage Investment Opportunities
  • How to Position Yourself to Earn Outsized Returns
  • How to Mitigate Your Risk Through Diversification and Investment Monitoring
