The world of private fundraising is going through a generational moment - meme stocks, NFTs and Robinhood.

Everybody is looking to become an investor and with the right reason - the vast majority of wealth creation in the world has come from private assets, not public assets.

Enter Republic: an equity crowdfunding platform that's raised over 50 million dollars in venture capital to take on the status quo.

This week, we chatted with Ken Nguyen, Co-Founder & CEO of Republic, to get his perspective on the business and the future of fundraising.
