Note from Jake Gibson

I invest primarily in Seed and Pre-Seed deals, and occasional Series A or B follow-ons, where I have strong conviction in the founders and the markets they are pursuing.

My focus will primarily be on applications of emerging/frontier tech (software and hardware) to highly regulated industries, such as fintech, aerospace, manufacturing, etc. Though I may occasionally come across interesting deals outside of these sectors.

I will pass along updates where possible, but I can't guarantee there will be any. Also note that angel investing is very risky, and you should be prepared to lose all or part of your money.

Dealflow
I will try to share (best effort) every deal where I have at least a $100K allocation, and the founder / entrepreneur allows it.
Jake is one of our most impactful angels. He’s sharp, well-connected, an experienced operator, and always available to help. He’s secured a spot on the short list of advisors we depend most heavily on. I couldn’t be happier having Jake on our side.
Jake is a helpful, loyal, and smart investor who shows up for founders, asks good questions, and cares about important problems. I feel grateful to have him in our corner.
