When the chips were down I only thought I had two options, close the company or sell it. Gil encouraged me to choose a third option "aim for the moon". We did and the result is a profitable growing company on the way to success

What more can one say about the $25 billion man that already hasn't been said? His syndicate is the largest on AngelList, he's one of the most prominent and successful angel investors in the world - and he's just getting started now that he's plowing into the most promising 20...more
Amazing guy. Amazing investor. Super-connected and helpful. No bullshit.
Gil is one of the smartest and most connected guys in Silicon Valley. He truly cares about the entrepreneurs that he backs. He gets involved and provides real help to the companies, beyond the money. 
Gil is one of the most honest, trustworthy and truthful person I have ever met in my life. He is by far one in a billion in my book and on super smart angels who envision where the industry is heading and he has been right nearly every time though with risk included to recommend participation in...more
Co-investing and working with Gil on UXPin was amazing. Speed, great advise, an amazing network. He encourages, inspires, connects or shouts whatever is most needed. Gil is an awesome investor and advisor.
Gil is super helpful and friendly
Gil Penchina is regarded as one of the top Angels on AngelList for his many syndicates and his success on the platform
Outstanding advisor/angel. Helpful, supportive, provides great feedback and has an excellent network. Extremely lucky to have him on board.

Advisors and investors tend to over promise and under deliver, but not Karl Jacob.

Karl has a crazy amount of experience as a serial entrepreneur. He's been through it all and can provide context behind any hard decision you might be facing.

Founder of a company Karl Jacob advised
Deep digital experience, confident and respected. Karl has great perspective with natural business intuition. Highly recommended as a board member, advisor, and investor.
Karl is fantastic. He committed to our seed round in the first meeting and kept supporting us through multiple raises, a pivot, and ultimately through to our acquisition. He gets it and I can't wait to work with him again!
Karl was my first business mentor who from whom I learned focus and brutal prioritization.

Thank you Karl for teaching me rule #1 of how to fish.
Ben Katz
Co-founder of a company Karl Jacob founded
Karl is fantastic - if you ever get the chance to work with him, I highly recommend doing so. He's sharp, decisive and an all-around great guy!
We wouldn't be anywhere near where we are without Karl. He was one of our first investors and has stuck by our side through it all. During the highs and lows of building our company, Karl stepped up and kept the faith when most investors would have given up and now our company is stronger...more
Karl was one of our first investors and has consistently been supportive, helpful, and honest through all the ups and downs of building a startup. He's been in the trenches himself, multiple times, so he knows what it's like as a Founder so we couldn't have asked for a better investor.
