On March 14, online payments technology provide Stripe announced it had raised $600 million in its “Series H.”
This funding round values the business at a staggering $95 billion.
That's nearly triple the company's last reported valuation of $36 billion, less than a year ago – in April 2020.
If this doesn't demonstrate the power of private investing, I don't know what does.
The private markets hold the potential for much higher returns because you can invest before these businesses go public.
Once they go public, you could easily be up hundreds or thousands of times on your initial investment.
Previously, only “accredited investors” could invest in private companies.
But now anyone can do it.

The next closest is Robinhood, trailing at a roughly $12 billion valuation.
With its revenue largely tied to the increase in online shopping and investing, Stripe has seen eye-popping growth over the last year.
The company could go public later this year or next. And all investors should be paying close attention.
