My father was a buy and hold public stock investor. He would choose stocks that were in a sector he had some knowledge of, had either worked in or had some connection to. He would then track the progress of the stock each month –looking at revenue, earnings, major news announcements among other things. Those that stayed on track with their projections and showed progress eventually found their way into his portfolio. Over the years, his portfolio grew and he ended up with an impressive one.
The same lessons apply to those who want to invest in early stage startups even though public information about the company is not readily available. Choose companies that fit a sector in which you have some knowledge or connection, then setup a tracking system to see how the company does.
The key difference is that the public market makes financial information readily available while the non-public markets such as startups do not.
That’s where TEN Capital comes in. Through its relationship with Texas-based startups, it has access through various means to track startups and their progress.
If you are interested in tracking a startup, you can sign up for TEN Capital’s Monitoring service which tracks key startups and provides information about their revenue, earnings, and other key financial information. The first 3 companies are free for 6 months.
