In the spring of 2019, Daily editor Teeka Tiwari and I set out on an ambitious project…
Our goal was to give Main Street investors access to deals formerly reserved for the Wall Street elite and connected Silicon Valley insiders.
And if we pulled it off, we knew we could deliver life-changing gains for our readers.
The deals I’m talking about involve what we call pre-unicorns.
A unicorn is a private company with a valuation of $1 billion more. A pre-unicorn is a company still below a private market value of $1 billion.
It’s important to find pre-unicorns early because once they cross $1 billion as a private company… their chances of becoming a multibillion-dollar company increase exponentially.
For example, in 2020, we saw unicorns like Airbnb, DoorDash, Unity Software, and Snowflake go public.
Since their debuts, these companies have returned an average of 25%. But pre-unicorn investors in these companies have seen potential average gains of 2,190%.
That’s the difference between turning every $1,000 into $1,250… and turning every $1,000 into $22,900.
As you can see, the pre-unicorn route offers the opportunity for life-changing gains. But here’s the thing…
Main Street Can Now Hunt for Pre-Unicorns
For decades, only the rich and connected could invest in pre-unicorns.
Federal regulations walled off the massive gains they saw in companies like Facebook, Uber, and Twitter from ordinary investors like you.
But in April 2012, all of that changed with the passage of the JOBS Act. It took years to iron out and implement the law. But the result was a game-changer.
For the first time, publishers like Palm Beach Research Group could write about private pre-unicorn deals – often called pre-IPOs – and share them with their readers.
An initial public offering – or IPO – is when a private company lists on a public exchange like NYSE or Nasdaq.
In the past, only millionaires could invest in pre-IPO deals. But thanks to the JOBS Act, mainstream investors like you can now go hunting for pre-unicorns.
That’s why Big T and I went to work… and we created a newsletter to recommend the best pre-IPO deals we could find for our subscribers.
In a moment, I’ll show you how to find your own pre-unicorns. But first… let me tell you how you can invest in them without risking your current lifestyle.
Pre-Unicorns: The Perfect Asymmetric Play
Longtime readers know we find safe, conservative ideas that generate multiple streams of income. Then we put a portion of that safe income into what we call “positive asymmetric risk” investing…
That means you can take a grubstake from your income-generating strategies – say $100 from your dividend-paying stocks – and potentially stand to make $100,000 or more with asymmetric investments like cryptos or pre-unicorns.
And the numbers don’t lie…
Here’s what Teeka said about pre-IPOs back in 2020, when a record number of companies were going public:
If you tally all the companies that had IPOs so far this year, the difference between buying at the IPO price and the pre-IPO price is staggering. On average, gains made on IPO day are 36%. Sure, that’s nice.
But for pre-IPO investors, those same one-day gains are 22,946%. That’s the difference between a luxury vacation and living a life of luxury.
The outsized returns in the pre-IPO market certainly come under the umbrella of “asymmetric investments.” You don’t need too many gains of that magnitude to dramatically move the needle on your net worth.
That’s how venture capitalists invest… they stock up on these types of asymmetric deals – and let time do the heavy lifting.
Take Peter Thiel, for example.
In 2004, he became the first outside investor in Facebook, when he offered up a $500,000 angel investment… By the end of 2012, Thiel had sold his entire stake in the company for a little more than $1 billion.
That’s a mind-blowing 200,000% return on his original investment. And how you can turn a small investment into 24/7 freedom in 24 hours or less.
Pre-Unicorns: Potentially Bigger Gains Even Faster
No other market event creates more overnight millionaires than a pre-unicorn going public.
But you can’t invest in just any pre-unicorn. That’s why Big T and I created a three-step formula to identify them.
As you go on your hunt… you need to look for startups that meet these three criteria:
Poised to disrupt a massive industry: Just like Uber completely disrupted the entire taxi industry… Airbnb disrupted the entire hospitality industry… And Facebook completely reinvented social media… A massive unicorn in the making will be looking to unmake an entire industry.
Still in their early stages: This means the private company’s value is less than $1 billion. So it’s still in its pre-unicorn stages.
Have an IPO on the horizon: This is the real secret to making life-changing gains. You must find a way to get into the deal before it goes public.
We’ve seen this formula work time and time again.
Google was a pre-unicorn… And early investors who got in at the pre-unicorn stage had a chance to make 36,166% in its first 24 hours of trading.
Facebook was a pre-unicorn… And early investors who got in at the pre-unicorn stage had a chance to make 121,822% in its first 24 hours of trading.
Twitter was a pre-unicorn… And early investors who got in at the pre-unicorn stage had a chance to make 110,614% in its first 24 hours of trading.
And I’m excited to announce we recently uncovered our first pre-unicorn play.
It’s disrupting a $160 billion industry… it’s valued at less than $100 million… and it plans to go public in the coming months.
So it ticks all three boxes on our checklist.
On Wednesday, Teeka held a special event called 24 Hours to 24/7 Freedom. During this event, he shared details about this pre-unicorn. Nearly 19,000 people attended, and you can watch a replay here for a limited time.
Pre-unicorns are like getting in on the ground floor of Amazon with Jeff Bezos or Facebook with Peter Thiel. So if you’re looking to take your first steps to achieving 24/7 freedom in 24 hours, follow our three-step checklist.
