I've seen plenty of posts about investing/speculating in public markets, which I also do. For example, public stock markets, options, futures, etc. Does anyone also invest in private offerings? Generally, these are the investments where you have to prove "accredited investor" status in order to invest in them (unjust in my opinion, but it is what it is).

I access these kinds of investments currently through a PE fund that lets accredited investors put money into the fund or the specific companies. Around Feb 2019 I bought into an interesting new trash-collecting company. Just yesterday I bought into a SaaS platform for home appraisals used by banks and Appraisal Management Companies (AMCs).

Is anyone else making these kinds of investments?

Nearly all of my investments are into private equities (real estate, businesses, etc), but not through a fund. In my opinion, one of the biggest benefits to investing in private equities is the insight into the specific investments, so if I'm going to be investing, I want to invest directly, not through a third-party.

Just my $.02...
