How to Invest in Pre-IPO Companies

Written By Jason Williams

Updated January 10, 2024

Today, I’m going to do something rare in this industry and I’m going to share one of the most successful investments from one of my premium investing communities.

Usually, I keep those close to the chest because they’re specifically for people who pay for access to the most explosive companies I uncover.

But today, I want to give you the opportunity to profit alongside them… and I’m not going to ask you for a single dime in exchange.

I’m also going to share the details of a new investment we just made in what I’m calling the “Amazon of health care.”

But before I get to that, I want to explain a little bit about the market where we’re making these investments…

You Can’t Sit Invest Here

You see, for years, the most lucrative investment market in the entire world, perhaps in the history of mankind, has been “off-limits” to the vast majority of investors.

And it was kept that way for a good reason, but not the one the “keepers” would tell people.

They said it was because this market was too risky for “unsophisticated investors” like you.

They said they were protecting you from yourself. It was for your best interests, if you believe what they said.

But the real reason retail investors were banned form participating was because the market is SO lucrative.

It’s created more billionaires than any stock index in history…

It’s how people like John Rockefeller and JPMorgan to Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk cemented their fortunes for generations to come…

It’s how Al Gore went from being a Tennessee fat cat to part of the global elite…

In case you haven’t guessed already, it’s the market for investments in private companies (before they go through an IPO).

And it was kept off-limits thanks to a rule written by famed investor Joe Kennedy for his buddy Franklin Roosevelt.

You see, after the stock market crash of 1929 and during the ensuing Great Depression, FDR reached out to his buddy Joe to help him create what would become the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

FDR wanted to help protect investors from unscrupulous characters that were rampant in the pre-crash era.

But Kennedy saw an opportunity to make sure that he and his super-wealthy buddies remained the richest and most influential people in the world.

So he snuck some language into what became the legislation that created the securities watchdog that would prevent anyone who wasn’t already super-wealthy from becoming super-wealthy.

With a few strokes of a pen and two words, he managed to ban a good 99% of the world from participating in the private markets that created so many moguls.

Those two words were “accredited investors.”

They may seem harmless enough, but they’ve been used for decades since to keep people like us from becoming people like them.

You see, those two words meant that anyone who was worth less than $1 million couldn’t invest in companies when they’re at their earliest stages of growth.

And while $1 million might not sound like much today when we’ve got so many centi-billionaires, that's equivalent to nearly $18 million of purchasing power in today's currency.

So when I say Kennedy was locking everyone but the super-wealthy out of these markets, I really mean it.

But a few years ago, that all changed…

With Liberty and Justice Profits for ALL

It was 2010 and the stock markets had just crashed as we entered the worst global recession since the Great Depression that sparked the accredited investor rules.

We had a new president whose party had just been crushed in the midterm elections. And he wanted to do something that would drum up support and that he could also get through a Congress controlled by his rivals.

And we got what would forever be known as the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, something equally palatable to his party, his opposition, and the American public.

In the language of that act was a little-known provision that nobody really gave much thought at the time.

But it was probably the most monumental part of the entire piece of legislation…

Because it opened those incredibly lucrative private markets to ALL Americans.

Thanks to that one clause, perhaps slipped in when nobody was looking, investing got a whole lot more democratized, private companies got a whole lot more funding, and individuals like you got the opportunity to get a whole lot richer.

And in case you’re having trouble believing that, I’ve got a few examples for you…

First, let’s take a look at Joseph K., of Cincinnati, who’s in his early 30s but will likely never have to work another day in his life.

Because his shares in a startup business are now worth “just under $100 million.”

Now, Joseph didn’t found the startup or make a large investment. In fact, Joseph says he’s not a “finance” or “investing” guy at all. 

All he did was find founders he believed in and he got in early.

And now that the startup is being acquired, he says he’s getting a cash payout of over $10 million, which is just a small fraction of his overall shares.

But Joseph is far from the only one with this kind of story. For further reference, take a look at Susanne P., of California…

Susanne is only 29, a tough age for many in pricey San Francisco.

But a high cost of living isn’t going to be a problem for her anymore, because her private business shares are now worth $6 million…

And that’s after California taxes! Not too shabby, eh?

Now, those are just two examples, but there are countless others, and I want you to be one of them.

That’s why I’m giving you direct access to one of the companies that the investing community I mentioned earlier already helped fund…

Because I’m convinced it’s going to be one of the most successful investments they ever make.

The Future of Delivery

Now, don’t let that heading fool you. I’m not talking about some DoorDash or Uber Eats imitation.

I’m talking about a company that’s developed the perfect vehicle for companies like Amazon, FedEx, UPS, and the USPS to use for all their last-mile deliveries.

You see, cities, states, and nations around the world are frantically rushing to meet ambitious carbon emissions reduction goals.

And in order to do that, some are outright banning the use of fossil fuel-powered vehicles on their streets.

Paris has plans to do it. California does too. New York won’t be far behind them.

And then the rest of the world will likely follow suit.

But the issue is that we still need to be able to use vehicles in those cities and states to get around.

Investments in public transportation will help the commuter side of the equation, but there’s still the matter of delivery vehicles.

You know, the ones that bring us our Amazon packages, bring stores the products they sell, and otherwise keep the economy running.

Now, I realize that there are already several companies making electric vehicles in the hopes of capturing that market.

But they’re going about it in the wrong way. And this company I’m sharing today is the only one truly on target.

You see, all the other EV truck-makers are doing what’s known as “upfitting” other companies' vehicles with their EV technology.

That means they’re using components designed for internal combustion-driven vehicles to build EVs.

Most of them are basically just slapping batteries and electric motors on Ford Transit vans and calling it a day.

And while that’s great for Ford since they get to sell more chassis (those are the vehicle frames, for those who were wondering)…

It’s not great for the EV market, because those vehicle frames weren’t designed to be used for electric vehicles.

And that means the first step is modifying every single chassis to work with batteries and electric motors.

What the world really needs is a purpose-built vehicle that’s designed specifically for the EV market.

And that’s exactly what the company I want to share with you, CityFreighter, has developed and is about to put into mass production.

It's designed an electric truck from the ground up with the specific intention of cornering the market for vehicles in that weight class.

And that’s not just delivery trucks, mind you…

It also includes emergency response vehicles like EMT trucks, ambulances, and even the trucks they use to fight forest fires.

It includes the shuttles we all take from the airport to our hotel and back again.

And it includes recreational vehicles like that Winnebago a lot of us dream of driving around in our retirements.

It even includes service trucks like the ones you see on the side of the road repairing downed electric wires and blown transformers.

So it’s a whole lot more than “just” delivery trucks.

And because CityFreighter designed these trucks from the ground up, they’re perfectly equipped to be turned into all variety of electric vehicles…

Which is why the company already has a TON of interest from companies around the world, from Europe to Asia and even right here in the United States.

I and the members of my pre-IPO investing community helped fund the company when it was still in its infancy, and our money helped to build its first functional vehicle model.

Since then, the company’s continued to develop its technology and partnerships with an array of major names in the transportation industry.

And now, it's ready to get its designs into a factory, start producing these vehicles at scale, and start fulfilling all that interest that’s been building.

To do that, it's raising a little more money to get the vehicles through the final stages of testing by European, Asian, and American transportation safety regulators.

And that’s where your opportunity to invest in the future — BEFORE the general public and BEFORE this company goes through an IPO and makes its early investors very wealthy — comes in.

In my opinion, the valuation is incredibly low considering all the potential baked into this company and the vehicle it’s developed.

And that means there’s likely a whole lot of blue sky (and big profits) ahead for those who get in early, before this company goes public and shoots up the charts.

So if that sounds like something you’re interested in, you can check out the company’s investor information and investment portal today and get your seat at the table with as little as $250.

But Wait, There’s More

And if you want access to more professionally curated pre-IPO investments like CityFreighter, I’ve got another treat for you today…

I keep my community of pre-IPO investors small by design. It’s a tricky market, and when our companies go public, having too many people trying to make an exit can kill the stock and cut into our profits.

But I recently opened up a few more slots for savvy investors who want to get in early on the best deals in the market.

One of which is the “Amazon of health care” I mentioned earlier…

It’s a company that’s modernizing medical supply chains with proprietary AI-driven software. And I’m convinced that’s going to position it as the leading marketplace for medical supplies…

Which is why I’ve taken to calling it the “Amazon of health care.”

It's already grossed over $100 million in revenue in just 24 months. And it’s raising what I’m convinced will be its final investment round before going public on a major stock exchange.

Now, I’ve already given you access to one of these types of investments today (and a really good one, in my humble opinion).

So I’m going to keep this one a secret only available to the members of my Main Street Ventures pre-IPO investing community.

BUT if you want to take one of those few slots I recently opened up, not only will I give you all the details on how to get a piece of the pie, but I’ll also give you the biggest discount on a membership that I’ve ever offered.

We’re finally seeing some life in the private markets after over a year of companies cutting costs and investors holding the purse strings tight.

So if you've ever been interested in pre-IPO investing and getting access to private deals, check out this podcast I did the other month where I get into even more details on this market, this company, and some of the other investments we’ve made and plan to make… 

Because I’ve also got several other new pre-IPO investments on my radar to add to my model portfolio in the next few weeks, and I'd love for you to get in on these big profit opportunities with us too.

And, as I said, there's a little bit of room for more investors in the “Amazon of health care” before its round closes.

So take a look right now at how Main Street Ventures can substantially help grow your wealth and then join us today.

To your wealth,
