Institutional and individual investors alike are realizing that often - the highest growth and, therefore, the highest return periods for innovative companies happen prior to IPO. As a result, there has been a meaningful uptick in interest in private market investing. Yet navigating this uncharted territory can be challenging without the right resources.
As participation in the private markets continues to increase, these investors are seeking greater transparency and access to insights to help them navigate and invest intelligently – from assessing opportunities, to valuing private companies, to implementing investment strategies and managing risk exposure.
Forge is here to do just that – to help private market investors see beyond their private market blind spots.
