in startups

my startup portfolio

I am trying different investment vehicles / asset classes to find out where can i have the edge. Investing in startups was one of them 2014-2016. I have made 9 investments in startups via Angel List, Crowdcube, Seedrs (UK) and Wefunder. The idea was that i can beat the funds which make nonsense investments. (yes yes. i know ‘beat the market’)

yearstartupinvestedfollow on round
2014Wefunder1.5exited with 7% roi
2014Soothe1second skipped. third 0.6. current valuation 2.8
2016Revolut0.6currently valued at 3.0 (received a cash offer)
total invested6.1 (excluding Wefunder)
current valuation (Revolut + Soothe 2d) 5.8

2017 August. Revolut. Attracted 66M investment at 420M valuation. I got a cash offer to sell my shares at x5. Decided to keep, because i believe Revolut can be 4-40 billion company. With exit from Wefunder and current Revolut and Soothe valuations i am close to break-even.
