Note from Kevin Siskar

I am the Managing Director of Founder Institute's New York City accelerator. Through my network of entrepreneurs, venture capital funds and accelerators, I have evaluated hundreds of companies that have resulted in building a portfolio of over 80 high growth companies. Including Easy Aerial, Stareable, Alta Claro, Diamond Hedge, Craft & Savor, Dental Stores and more.

The Founder Institute uses predictive founder focused social science, historical performance data, ecosystem references and direct hands on work evaluation over several months to select the most promising graduate companies. Through evaluation of founder performance both in the program and in the real world the assessment has proven to be over 85% accurate in predicting entrepreneurial success.

I was named the Best Startup Ecosystem Developer in the Founder Institute's 150+ city network in 2016 for my work with New York City startups.

Backers who have pre-funded their accounts will get priority in deals.

Dealflow

On average I help start forty companies each year and I plan to syndicate the best companies that break out. If we have a large enough allocation and the founder(s) feel AngelList is the right platform for them, we share the deal.
