I am a serial entrepreneur and active VC and Angel investor. As the CEO & Co-Founder of , I am proud to be leading the team building the next generation of ‘Messaging First’ recruitment marketing technologies. With two VC backed exits and 20+ years of digital experience, I lived through the Dotcom crash and can tell you about it. Previously, I was the CEO & Founder of Human Demand (sold to IgnitionOne) and the Co-founder of Offermobi (sold to Moko Media), and the Co-founder of FundingPost. I have taught digital marketing to well over 100,000 people worldwide. I am a Limited Partner in 15 Venture Funds and an angel investor in some awesome startups. I speak frequently at industry conferences and 3D print stuff for fun.
From all sides – being an entrepreneur, angel investor, and a LP in multiple VC funds . . .
Angels just bet their own money as not to worry about what other people think about their deals
VCs invest their reputation and the capital of their limited partners – and have to justify and answer for their portfolio
New angels (I went through this too). Try and get in their first deals too quickly – without doing enough diligence and letting ideas ‘sit’.
It feels like a race to make your first few investments – but its not a race – Angel Investing requires patience.
