As an individual investor, accessing private funds is difficult, time consuming, and expensive. If you don’t have the right network you’re almost locked out entirely, being forced to buy a $30k database and try to get meetings fund-by-fund.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Velvet makes it easy to discover, evaluate, and invest in private funds.
Velvet only accepts accredited investors and qualified purchasers.
Private funds are complex and unique investment vehicles, but that doesn’t mean they should be difficult to interact with. Put all of your effort into the investment decision, not the process.
