Investors can get in on this action by investing in listed Venture Capital firms. I don't feel bad about it or feel that anyone has done anything wrong. Making money in shares is easy - do your research, identify companies with a strong competitive advantage, gain as broad an understanding of the business as possible, figure out what the business is worth and buy shares in the business when they present a significant margin of safety. It's not rocket science. This requires patience and discipline. Sometimes it can take years for an opportunity to present itself. But patience has its rewards. I was watching Blackmores for 4 or 5 years, then bought when the shares fell to $27. They kept falling to $20, but I couldn't buy more due to restrictions from the super admin (I was spewin'!). This has now become my star holding. Could've bought Flight Centre for 32 bucks after the Air Asia crash. What does Flight Centre have to do with the crash? Nothin'! But it's in the business of selling flights. I missed out on this golden opportunity, because I was waiting for it to go down *just a little bit more*. As of today, it's trading at nearly 41 dollaridoos.
