VIDEO: How to Benefit from Seed Capital Investing

This year, the stock market has had all the twists and turns of a gripping novella.

The broad market — largely affected by soaring inflation and interest rate hikes — has seen both deep plunges and reassuring rallies.

And now, there’s a new plot twist … an exciting way to invest before virtually anyone else and largely without the drama.

Weiss Ratings has a brand-new service called Deal Hunters Alliance, which allows retail investors to get in early on breakthrough companies before they might go public… even before venture capitalists begin investing.

Private Equity Specialist Chris Graebe, a celebrated early stage investor, is the expert behind Deal Hunters Alliance.

As the editor, he introduces members to private companies that he believes have the best potential of turning nominal investments into memorable wins.

He tells me he’s thrilled to guide investors through the unique world of early stage investing.

Chris explains it this way:

I have been helping entrepreneurs raise capital and I’ve been helping retail investors understand this space, how they can win in this space.

What we’re trying to do with Deal Hunters Alliance is to educate and help the retail investor understand that this is a new pathway, a new piece that they can add to the strategy of their portfolio.

We have multiple reports that we’re creating, including a grading system that Weiss built for these startups.

I believe that if you do your due diligence and you become educated and you partner with the right people, you can be a smart, savvy retail investor in the world of private investing and enter deals with greater confidence.

Over the past few years, Chris has reviewed countless raises of equity crowdfunding, interviewed hundreds of founders, and built a network across the equity-based crowdfunding landscape.

The small startups he invested in — including some alongside billionaires Mark Cuban and Kevin O’Leary — have turned into a world-class portfolio, worth a combined $400 million today … and counting.

Some on that list include companies with groundbreaking technologies that have secured lucrative partnerships with firms like International Business Machines (IBM) and Alphabet (GOOGL).

The way to do it is through what Chris and the Weiss team call the Alpha Round of funding.

Alpha Round investing is the earliest phase of private funding for companies, generally known as the seed round or seed capital.

In today’s five-minute video segment, we explore how all this is now possible for the average investor.

In this insightful video, Chris discusses:

  • How this new investing space can be transformative for average investors.
  • Key qualities he looks for in finding disruptive companies that succeed.
  • His humble beginnings and how they have motivated him.

And more!

Happy investing!
