Representative Angel Investments

Current status: had stopped making illiquid investments after a bad health scare in 2015. Expect to be making a few investments in 2017, although not at my former pace. Happily, I’m well into the black and playing with house money, although to be fair since I started, the DJIA has doubled… But, so far, so good.

EXTERNALLY MANAGED STARTUP INVESTMENTS

AngelList Syndicates with

Naval RavikantWayne ChangFG AngelsSemil ShahJennifer Lum,  David Chang and Semyon Dukach. (Note, I did these while I was running my own startup. No longer active in syndicates; companies purchased through the syndicates above not included in this list, as I consider them more as externally managed funds.)

I also invest indirectly through certain angel funds or accelerator programs.
