Dropbox, Snapchat, Lyft, Pinterest, Bloom Energy, Instacart, Cloudera, Palantir, and Spotify. All nine of these companies are on CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list for 2016, and all nine are MicroVentures portfolio companies.
What does it mean to be a disruptor? CNBC describes these private companies as “revolutionizing the business landscape.” They’ve identified unexploited niches, created new ecosystems, grown at an unprecedented rate, unseated corporate giants, or all of the above. The nine disruptors listed above are a small sampling of the roughly 150 investments MicroVentures has made so far.
Unlike some other equity crowdfunding platforms, MicroVentures presents a wide range of venture-backed companies to our investors. Our deal flow reflects companies from a variety of industries and from all stages of the startup lifecycle, from the earliest to the latest – including exclusive opportunities that are typically closed off to investors outside of traditional VC. On top of that, our low minimums make it easier for investors to add private equity to the mix, further diversifying their portfolios.
We’re proud to see so many of our portfolio companies on CNBC’s list this year!
