In the past few weeks, we’ve written extensively about the Republic Note. In early July, Andy Gordon first reported on the Note — calling it an opportunity unlike any other. And on Monday, Andy recommended that our First Stage Investor members invest in the Note.
The reason we’re so impressed with the Note is it instantly diversifies and derisks startup investing. By investing in the Note, you’re essentially investing in the success of Republic.
Republic is one of the best and most innovative online investment platforms. Republic allows everyday investors to crowdfund startups, real estate and video games. Its track record in identifying high-quality investment opportunities for investors is outstanding.
And that track record is important. One of the ways Republic generates revenue is by investing in the upside of the startups that raise on the Republic platform. And Republic is sharing those profits with Republic Note investors in disbursements that are similar to dividend payments.
So the more successful Republic is, the more successful investors in the Republic Note will be.
This is a major innovation that all investors need to better understand. That’s why we’ve invited an old friend of ours, Republic co-founder and CEO Kendrick Nguyen, to join us for a special webinar and answer your questions. We first got to know Ken when he was General Counsel for AngelList back in 2014. His responsibilities were far ranging. He helped set up and launch a number of AngelList’s investment products, including its groundbreaking syndicate funds. When he founded Republic in 2016, we knew it was going to become a significant player in the crowdfunding space. But what Ken has accomplished in the last four years exceeded even our expectations.
The webinar is on July 30th. It will begin at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT. And it will last an hour. We’ll take your questions throughout. Click here to register and join us in this exclusive conversation
This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of the most important and innovative founders in the startup ecosystem. We look forward to seeing you there.
