  • Collective Liquidity leverages secondary markets to provide liquidity and unlock value for shareholders.

  • The number of tech unicorns in the private market is now roughly equal to those in the public market, having slightly fluctuated in 2024. If you seek growth equity returns and only invest in the public market, you're missing half the market, which consists of slower growth companies. In contrast, the private market offers access to high-growth tech companies, where growth rates of 30-40% are more attainable. As a result, the most promising growth companies prefer to remain private rather than going public.
  • Lessons for family offices, advisors, and high net worth individuals include understanding what you're investing in, pricing discipline, and the benefits of venture strategy in portfolio diversification.
