The Moody’s of Private Investing

Hey Boardroom!

Recently we teamed up with a new partner called KingsCrowd, which is like the Oracle of Delphi or the Library of Alexandria for private markets investing (in other words – THE center of information).  

Recent events have shown us that access to quality information about potential investments is more important than ever.

I’m sure investors in Silicon Valley Bank would have liked to have had better information on what the company’s capital base looked like BEFORE the dung hit the proverbial fan.  The fact that SVB did NOT have a Chief Risk Officer for a long stretch probably would’ve been a handy nugget of information to know.

Public markets are supposed to have an advantage over private markets when it comes to transparency of information, but as we have seen that is not always the case.  

KingsCrowd CEO Chris Lustrino recognized this years ago, and set about building a data and analytics platform to bring democratized private market information to the masses.  Think of KingsCrowd as building the Bloomberg Terminal for private markets investing. 

OK…Access to data is one thing, but making it USABLE is another.  You can find the same answers using the Dewey Decimal system as you can from Google, but one user experience is significantly superior to the other.  

Along these lines, KingsCrowd has built an intuitive, user-friendly system that allows investors to unleash their inner Ron Popiel (slice, dice, make julienne fries) on private market data to source ideas that are most suited to their individual needs.

set it forget it

Speaking of infomercials, here’s the Slap Chop version of some of the company’s highpoints:

👉 Chris Lustrino is a Private Equity veteran that saw a need about 8 years ago.  Since then, more than 4,000 investors have put over $7M into the company, allowing KingsCrowd the runway to build a solid and sustainable company.

👉 KingsCrowd is operating multiple revenue streams via an investment fund and also a subscriber-based business model. Not only are they providing private market data, they are eating their own cooking to use that data for investment purposes.  Management having skin in the game is a good thing, and all too rare these days.

👉 The company is gearing up for its next growth phase, and investors can climb aboard.  Currently KingsCrowd is a Reg A offering shares for $1.00 each with a minimum investment of $1,000.  Check out the offering here

And to back up a little – last weekend we distributed the ALTS deep dive (found here) and before that we had the pleasure of hosting Chris himself in the Boardroom.  Here is the interview if you missed it! 


KingsCrowd not only dominates their sector… they invented it!

There is no other place you will find the kind of information on private companies that they have put together – along with Bllomberg, they are literally becoming the Moody’s of private investing.

If you are still reading this email, you are likely pretty interested in private investing! 

So if that’s you (as it is ME) – I encourage you to simply jump right in and start using their platform by visiting their main website here: KingsCrowd.  This is the hands down BEST way to see the power of their offering.

👉 And if you see the potential of this opportunity for KingsCrowd to become the next Bloomberg or Moody’s of private investing like I do, then I encourage you to check out what investing in KingsCrowd itself looks like HERE.

This new partner is doing BIG THINGS and I can’t wait to have Chris back to the Boardroom – so be on the lookout for another guest appearance (coming soon!).
