Neil Patel has been an entrepreneur for 17 years - right now, he runs 4 companies that operate globally. He's also founded several startups that grew into amazingly profitable businesses.
He's a New York Times bestselling author. The Wall Street Journal calls him a top influencer on the web, Forbes says he's one of the top 10 marketers, and Entrepreneur Magazine says he created one of the 100 most brilliant companies.
Neil was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 35 by the United Nations.
As a startup founder, Neil was always hustling, trying to find private investors. That's because every company - including Google, Amazon, and Facebook - starts out small, needing an influx of capital to grow larger.
Neil watched a lot of his own investors in those days get rich just by getting in early. Here's why: a young startup has almost unlimited growth potential, and its stock value grows with it.
Investing in a company that's already worth nine figures? Sure, good picks will show some growth... but they can't match the returns you'd see if you got in back when that business was worth peanuts.
Buying private equity is like hacking the investment world. Everyone out there is chasing the stock market... when in fact, 90 percent of growth happens before a company goes public. Early investing is a no-brainer.
That's why Neil spends more time these days on the other side of the table - as an angel investor. That means he gets to be one of the first to put capital into young and promising companies. He calls it his way of giving back to the entrepreneurial world that allowed him to become so successful.
But make no mistake: it has ended up paying him back, too. Neil has made some unbelievable returns backing early-stage startups. Now, he's here to teach you to do the same.
