Startup culture is blooming around the world with many newborn startups trying to solve problems that are far more pressing than the lack of yet another chat app. As you may already know, startups are much riskier and more likely to fail, so investing in startups can be hugely beneficial as the returns (above inflation) are higher than other types of investments. The startups you have chosen if, in the future, will get recognized in the industry you will get recognition in the market. Then, this recognition acts as a catalyst for your fame too as you are directly related to the organization. Furthermore, it diversifies your portfolio investments and getting updates from the founder is a chance of learning about different industries.
