Access IPOs is about helping you invest in IPO stocks.
You’re probably not a super-wealthy Wall Street investor. Neither am I.
IPOs have become easier to invest in for individual investors over the past few years.
However, allocations for the most anticipated deals remain elusive for retail investors.
What’s important to keep in mind is that the most disruptive companies may give you a short-term trading pop if you manage to receive an IPO allocation, but the real money is made the decade after the IPO.
You could have bought Netflix, Amazon, or Tesla years after their IPOs and still made 1,000% gains.
This website has shifted its focus a bit over the years.
Many investors received shares of Square, Hubspot, Teladoc, and Globant — all up more than 1,000% since their IPOs.
When LOYAL3 shut down, the focus moved to Motif Investing, which offered IPO access to ordinary investors for very low minimum investments.
Motif Investing offered its IPO customers shares of Blink Charging (up 1,000%+) and Novavax (up 10,000%+ since its IPO), among many others. Motif closed its doors in 2020.
Access to pre-IPO shares is still difficult even with improved technology. That’s because traditional IPOs have struggled to move beyond the good ol’ boys’ Wall Street culture.
Relationships and wealth still determine who gets preferred IPO access — which may be the reason for a new trend that’s gaining steam.
SPACs (special purpose acquisition companies) are gaining momentum. SPACs are blank check public companies that look to acquire private startups to bring the companies public.
Also known as a reverse merger, SPAC acquisitions make it easier for companies to go public with less scrutiny by regulators. That may change in the future.
Either way, startups will always need to become publicly-traded. Whatever route they choose, Access IPOs will be watching.
This site aims to follow high-demand private companies which investors are excited to own. So that when they become public, long-term investors can jump on board for the ride.
