Don't invest unless you're prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high-risk investment and you're unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong. Take 2 mins to see our risk warning.
As startups are risky investments, your startup investments should only comprise a relatively small element of your portfolio.
It is important to build a portfolio of startups you invest in to mitigate your risks. It is recommended startup investors build a portfolio of 10-30 startup investments over the course of 3-5 years.
Most startups fail (and that’s expected) so you need to have enough skin in the game to ensure you get the big winner.
