Today, startups aren’t going public early because they choose to build unicorns before opening themselves to become an IPO. While that’s a good thing for the founders and investors, it makes it almost impossible for the public to invest in startups early to maximize ROI because of the risk and massive investment required. But thanks to today’s guest, Jonathan Medved, it’s now possible for people to find and invest in the next unicorn through his company, OurCrowd.

Join Dr. Jeremy Weisz on this episode of Inspired Insider Podcast as he talks with OurCrowd Founder, Jonathan Medved, about finding and investing in the next unicorn. Tune in as they discuss Jonathan’s pilgrimage to Israel and his entrepreneurial journey that led to the founding of his equity crowdfunding platform, OurCrowd. They also discuss the startups in OurCrowd’s portfolio, how they decide which companies to invest in, and the type of people who can invest through their platform.
