This is a Discussion Post related to the third week of 522.
How do you invest? This week we’ve looked at how new ventures are pitched: perhaps you can imagine yourself as the person being pitched to? Whether with bank accounts, mutual funds, stock markets, casinos or lotteries, everyone has a unique risk profile. For me, I focus on investments where I have the best chance to contribute to a ‘win’, such as I enjoy renovating houses, and funding my own startups, and investing my time volunteering for non-profits. Given whatever time, money, etc, you might have to invest, can you describe your investment strategy, and what you’re looking for in terms of ROI (Return on Investment)? Try to think in terms of what would need to be in a ‘pitch’ to get you interested.
