A better way to invest in high-tech Startups.

Investing in high-tech Startups

At 808, we bridge the gap between Investor and Investee that we feel is a common theme in early-stage venture funding; offering a unique solution for investors that addresses the rapidly changing landscape of high-tech opportunities.

 

High-tech is thriving

In the world of technology, the mantra "innovate or die" is truer for organizations than ever. With technology continuing to disrupt traditional sectors, it is projected 40% of incumbent established market leaders will be gone in the next 5 years. On the other hand, new industries such as Google, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb and PayPal are thriving. 

 

This poses several challenges for investors, both institutional and individual:  How does one find these new high-tech opportunities before they are mature and become overpriced?  Even if found, how can an individual invest?  How does one know if an investment has a chance? At what stage should one invest? 

 

808s mission is clear

To bring together successful experts and leverage their experience to forage through the plethora of new ventures seeking funds, and create investment opportunities for everyday people who want to participate in this new exciting and pervasive investment phenomenon.

Risk Warning

An investment in the Fund involves a high degree of risk, including the risk that the entire amount invested may be lost. The Fund may invest in individual investments which may decrease in value due to specific company issues not related to the broader market. The Investment Manager may not be successful in investing in transactions that generate a sufficient return or any return, and may lose part or all of the capital on any investment the Fund invests in. Investments in early-stage private companies should only be part of your overall investment portfolio and those investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 5-7 years) should not invest.
