Real Private Deals, NOT Crowdfunding

Subscribers of Hodge Family Office and I have been on a multi-year run of successfully financing small companies privately.

I’m not talking about crowdsourcing deals. This isn’t Wefunder or some other platform where you don’t know if the company is ever going public... or if you’re ever going to get your money back.
I’m talking about participating in real private placements in real listed companies, or in private companies with an established roadmap to going public.

Any company that’s struggling for cash will take investor money. The hard part is consistently getting your money back with a positive return — or making the winners big enough to pay the losers and then some.

Here are a few examples...

We participated in a private placement for Ynvisible Interactive (TSX-V: YNV)(OTC: YNVYF) at C$0.30 with a half warrant at C$0.60. It’s an electric ink company that has since signed some major deals with international technology companies.

The shares have since gone over C$2.00. That turns a $10,000 investment into over $68,000 on just the shares alone. Add in the half warrant and you’re looking at another $17,000.
So that's good work, if you can get it.

VSBLTY (CSE: VSBY)(OTC: VSBGF) is another company that I got members into privately, down at C$0.30. That's now a dollar stock. This is a technology company that uses edge computing to turn displays into cameras that collect data for advertising and security purposes. AB Inbev is putting it in 50,000 stores.
On that deal we had half warrants at C$0.40. Including those warrants, $10,000 into VSBLTY has been worth as much as $41,000 — and the story is still developing.

That's also pretty good work if you can get it.

And then RESAAS Services (TSX-V: RSS)(OTC: RSASF), which is in the property technology, or proptech, sector — like financial technology for real estate. It's like a Facebook for real estate agents, is what I call it. But then RESAAS monetizes those agents by offering a platform where they can share leads and settle commissions and sell houses off-market, which is the way a lot of houses are sold now through realtors and their networks, because it's such a hot market.

I had readers in RESAAS via a private deal at C$0.20. And that was actually quite a deal to be able to get in on the financing because a lot of the money had been raised previously at much higher prices, well north of C$1.00, and some people paying as high as C$4.00 a share.

Last year, RESAAS was able to buy a bunch of FDA-approved rapid tests for COVID. It was able to achieve profitability by selling the tests. And then it announced a big deal with Keller Williams, which is the biggest realtor network in the world. Keller Williams is recommending that their 185,000 real estate agents pay to join RESAAS' platform. The premium platform is $99 a month, so that math gets really squirrely really quickly.
But then what recently sent RESAAS over $1 was this gentleman from a company called eXp World Holdings (NASDAQ: EXPI) joined the board. EXP is another proptech company. They call themselves a cloud-based brokerage. So their vice chairman decided to join the board of RESAAS. And that's a pretty big deal because EXP shares went from below $1 to $90, creating tens of thousand percent return. This gentlemen only joins the boards of three companies at a time and has a pretty serious plan for US capital markets, et cetera.

His name is Randall Miles. He's a former big wig at Cantor Fitzgerald and has held a ton of big roles. As soon as that news came out, shares of RESAAS went to $1.50 very quickly.
A $10,000 speculation in RESAAS when we financed it at C$0.20 is now worth $150,000. And that’s because we also had full warrants at C$0.20... so every $10,000 turned into $75,000 — twice.

Having full warrants priced that cheap is a rarity.

You need someone with connections to get you in real deals like these.

That someone is the Hodge Family Office.

I personally participated in all these deals.
