seeking advise for first stage investments.

Hi I am Poquejohnk want to get some advise for the first stage investments.
Are there some similar site like Oxford.com where I may invest small amount to non listed startups without charging fee for the monthly report?

I think the most likely advice that you will get is that investing in first stage companies is more like gambling than investing and that you shouldn't put in any money that you can't lose.

I dont have the slightest idea who or what oxford is other than a nice shoe. However, if it was my first stage investment I would pick Vanguards VTI for my equity portion of my asset allocation. They send monthly reports for no fee.

Don't even think about this! As a small retail investor any deal you are offered will be so stinky that they can only sell it to suckers.
