I'm a founder, podcaster, former journalist and prolific angel. I've backed 50 startups and one of them turned into a unicorn (uber). A bunch of others are doing well, so I started an angel fund called the LAUNCH Fund. The Launch Fund closed at $10m and is going to invest in 100 startups over the next three years. We will try and find another couple of Uber's and have a lot of fun founding awesome startups.
If a founder allows us, we will syndicate their deal here on AngelList.
Angel investing is really hard, but I love doing it. I love founders and innovation, and I think with a lot of hard work and consistency we will have a solid return.
However, angel investing should never be more than 1% of your total portfolio/networth... so please act responsibly and only back at a level that you can afford to lose--because we are going to be swinging for the fences with my syndicate!
If we have a large enough allocation and the founder(s) feel AngelList is the right platform for them, we share the deal.
