Venture capital has been perhaps the best performing asset class over the last 25 years. The problem is that most people can’t access it… So where do people go to actually get into this VC bonanza? The answer is, they come here to OurCrowd, where we invite the investor to not just invest with us in the company but to help *grow* the company… Come see it in person at the 2020 OurCrowd Global Investor Summit on February 13th and meet thousands of your colleagues, and see hundreds of startups. Looking forward to seeing you there…
