Investing in Startups

One of the top 10 questions we get is… “why should I invest in a startup”?

WiGL’s go-to answer is because it only takes one good Startup investment to change your life. Sadly, there isn’t really a good science you can use to pick a winner.

But we thought it would be useful to share some pretty good references on why someone should invest in WiGL…or any other startup on StartEngine.com.

Here on the StartEngine platform (what the JOBS ACT calls a funding portal), there are great resources to help anyone new to startup investing:

Another good place to start, like everything else these days is Google.

Here’s WiGL’s perspective on startup investing, based on articles you can review online:

5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Startups

Reference: https://fullscale.io/blog/startup-investment/

 

1. Early Investment Means Greater Rewards

2. Diversifying Your Portfolio

3. Range of Options

4. Impact Investment

5. High Potential for Buy-Outs

 

These are five really good reasons to potentially expand your portfolio by investing in startups like WiGL.

Getting in early is always a plus and WiGL is a very early startup. Across StartEngine, there are a number of offerings…like WiGL…that are early enough to join as a very early investor (or maybe 1st round investor).  Likewise, having a wide variety of investments is also a tried-and-true method of growing your equity. Again, this is much more art than science.

But even with art, you want diverse groups of investments. While WiGL lands clearly in the technology space, there are other types and ranges of startups on StartEngine to fit nearly all risk tolerance levels. And many of the StartEngine offerings are like WiGL, in that we all potentially have the ability to improve the lives of billions of people.

Lastly, WiGL, and most offering on StartEngine started with the Exit in mind.

Clearly, there are a host of other pros and cons to investing in “anything”. Hopefully, this info has been useful and helps someone make the yes versus no decision on investing in WiGL or something else here on StartEngine.
