Overview

Your gateway to pre-IPO companies. In an environment when companies are staying private indefinitely, employees and early investors suffer from a lack of liquidity, diversification, and transparency. They help fix this by providing an online trading and information platform for brokering the offering, sale, and purchase of private company securities, in addition to providing tools to help you learn about, track, and manage your equity. Their online marketplace platform allows you to diversify your portfolio, invest in new opportunities, and gives you access to insights, price trends, and more. They provide custom liquidity solutions to private companies and their employees, and offer pre-IPO opportunities to institutions and investors.

How you make money

Accredited investors will own an interest in an LLC, which owns the underlying shares of a private company. If the company gets acquired or goes public, Forge will distribute shares or cash proceeds to you. Not all private companies will get acquired or IPO, and not all IPOs or acquisitions will result in successful investments.

How Forge makes money

Their baseline fee is 5% to the buyer, and 5% to the seller. On certain transactions, we may need to charge a higher amount to one side (and charge proportionally less to the other), for structural or operational reasons.

Is it Safe?

Investment opportunities posted on this website are "private placements" of securities that are not publicly traded, are subject to holding period requirements, and are intended for investors who do not need a liquid investment. Investing in private companies may be considered highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk, including the risk of substantial loss of investment. Investors must be able to afford the loss of their entire investment.
