and don't forget that you have a 1 in 10 chance to make 10:1 on your money!

Also watch out for who else is at the table. If lots of options have been handed out to VCs, you may get diluted when the stock moves. A 10 bagger for VCs might be a 2 bagger for you.

Also avoid pink sheets like the plague. Most of those are pump and dump material. The going public event should be supported by solid performance numbers.

Do you realize that this is a losing proposition? Probably not the best to offer advice on this topic when you have no understanding of risk/reward and statistics...
I invested this way in the 90s. Out of ten risky start-ups, one will be a dog, one a star, and the rest nothing special. I got my 2 10x and then decided the work and risk was not worth it. Those other 8 were a drag. Ended up ahead overall and I loved my winners. But I learned a lot about the style of the players in the space. You really do need access to the insiders.
