The smart, simple way to invest in high-growth startups with an IRA. 

The smart, simple way to invest in high-growth startups with an IRA. 

Investing in venture via a qualified retirement account is a smart strategy that over a third of our investors employ, for three reasons:

  1. Horizon Matching. Alumni Ventures investments are 10-year funds that require a long-term mindset. A retirement account can be an ideal vehicle for investing in venture capital.
  2. Tax Advantages. Self-directed IRAs enjoy the same tax advantages as traditional retirement accounts. Distributions are paid directly back to your IRA account and can provide opportunities for outsized tax-deferred growth.
  3. Diversification. Alternative asset classes like venture capital typically have low correlation to the stock market, and may serve as a counterbalance during market volatility and can help offset any downside.
