Humblemaker coffee announced that they are broke and selling the company.
This is the first company, I officially lost the money. 😩
Wow! Thanks for the headsup! I thought about investing in them!
Hi Caleb, I just saw your message to Lift on SE, his answer does not make any sense to me about the convertible notes, Valuation increased 80million without any change in share price.
Also have you looked in to Zirconia, looks very promising, share your thoughts.
Also Dronedeck Valuation seems very high, is it worth to get in now.
DroneDek seems incredibly high IMO. I am not convinced by their patents personally because I have seen several other companies with alternative strategies. As well, you already have companies like Amazon and Walmart with their own versions of drone delivery. Its a good idea nad company but not enough left on the bone for me at that valuation
I have made several investments over the past two years.
my highest investments are in the order of top 20
Liberty Access technologies
Out of all my investments, At least 10 to 15 companies hopeless, no updates, no news. But I am glad they are smaller positions in the portfolio.
I have my portfolio in the menu at the top of the site but we have a lot of similar ones. StartEngine, KSCP, Monogram, Boxabl, Piestro, Blendid, Atombeam, LaneAxis, LegionM, Epilog, Fisher Wallace, and LIFT. Probably whimstay eventually.
How many companies/offerings is everyone invested in? I started this early last year and am in 48 companies + 1 real estate offering. I'm hoping I hit or exceed the 9/10 startups fail mantra since I'd have 4-5 winners already over 5-10 years :)
Im about the same and also hoping to exceed that. So far it's looking pretty good. Boxabl, StartEngine, Piestro are my big ones and if they IPO'd at current prices, they would be worth more than I initially invested by quite a bit already.
I have 1 company that sent out "We're on the brink of bankruptcy" but then sent out the next week "Nevermind, we think we're good now" and then like 2-3 that are realistically never gonna IPO or amount to anything.
The rest are all doing pretty well with varying success. Some are highly profitable and killing it with massive growth, some are flat/slightly down but still looking good long term.
Man I wish I got in on the Boxabl raise last year. I waited to long and got waitlisted. Luckily got in this year and am still very optimistic about their future even with the increased valuation. Piestro is one of my biggest winners too. Also Astralabs. Startenginie is a no-brainer in the long run as well.
It was interesting. At the time, there wasnt much hype for it and I almost didnt invest because there were quite a lot of people that we're vocal about not liking it. Ended up grabbing some at the last minute and it worked out incredibly well.
AtomBeam is also going well as a 4th. There's also like 2-3 companies that are taking off that haven't raised anymore money so I have no idea how well they're doing like Solgaard, MSBAI, and some others
Im pretty optimistic about it all though
