Public Company Opportunities Have Evaporated

Back in 1996, there were over 8,000 public companies trading on American stock exchanges. Fast forward to today, and that number has collapsed to fewer than 3,750.

The end result?

Many of the strongest investment opportunities lie in private markets.

With 10 East, qualified individuals can invest alongside private market veterans in vetted deals across private credit, real estate, niche venture/private equity, and other one-off investments that aren’t typically available through traditional channels.

Benefits of membership include:

  • Flexibility – members have full discretion over whether to invest on an offering-by-offering basis. 

  • Alignment – principals commit material personal capital to every offering. 

  • Institutional resources – a dedicated investment team that sources and diligences each offering.

10 East is where founders, executives, and portfolio managers from leading firms are diversifying their personal wealth.
