30 Oct OurCrowd Joins Millennium Alternative Investment Network® to Increase Access to Venture Capital Opportunities in United States
MAIN® provides access to diversification opportunities for advisors and their clients
JERUSALEM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OurCrowd, the global venture investing platform and Israel’s leading venture investor, will join the Millennium Alternative Investment Network® (MAIN®), which provides advisors and individual investors with a streamlined way to discover, research and invest in alternative investment opportunities. The MAIN platform is hosted by Millennium Trust Company, LLC (“Millennium Trust”), the industry’s leading provider of specialized custody solutions. Through MAIN, advisors and investors will have access to OurCrowd’s venture capital investment opportunities through a self-directed IRA.
OurCrowd CEO Jon Medved said, “Investment advisors are increasingly interested in offering their clients access to the upside associated with alternative investments. Most important among these are hard-to-access venture capital opportunities, which until now were just aspirational for most individual investors. Our listing on MAIN will expand access to venture capital to a significant audience.”
OurCrowd’s global network, top-notch performance and robust deal flow pipeline combine to provide unprecedented instant access to exclusive venture capital opportunities, including OurCrowd’s growing portfolio of 200 promising startups. Millennium Trust provides access to these opportunities to their advisor and investor clients through MAIN, a free research, education and alternative investment resource for advisors and individual investors.
