Note from Jacob Brody

As a Partner at Helpful Networks, I advise corporate clients across industries like insurance, financial services, agriculture and health on digital transformation, platform development and new concept incubation. I'm also currently an advisor to Expanding Capital, Vast Ventures, and Abra while investing out of Helpful Capital. As an angel and venture investor I've backed 30+ companies from seed to growth stage across consumer, hardware, advertising, fintech, insuretech, healthcare and enterprise software. Helpful Capital generally invest in companies that fit our themes: data-ingestion engines and the pillars of human need (i.e. food, health, education, employment and shelter).

Please be mindful that tech investments are risky by nature. Some deals might outperform all expectations while others or all may simply fail and be worth $0.

Dealflow

Helpful Capital will be syndicating the majority of my seed and early-stage on the AngelList platform, with select late-stage opportunities might be syndicated as well. We typically invest $2500 to $5k in principal per deal depending on our relationship with the entrepreneur, our ability to provide value add and our ability to place principal investments alongside our syndicate.

Jacob is a smart, passionate, dedicated investor who is constantly looking to support our company. He immediately added value to our company by making key introductions and providing insights on our go to market marketing strategy. Great guy, great investor.
