Note from Karl Jacob

I have a positive investment track record MemSQL, Cloudera, AfterLive (sold to Twitter) and many others. I have been an operator at 7 companies and raised money thru 22 rounds of financing so I know how to help companies get to the next level. One of those companies sold to Microsoft and another to AT&T for many times the invested capital. I have assisted in numerous M&A transactions so when things don't work out I have a good track record of returning capital at 1-2x vs zero. I have proprietary deal flow and I am often the first call an entrepreneur makes to raise funds. In two recent deals I was the only angel asked to invest

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.
Dan Martell
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.
