Bong is by far the most hands-on and helpful angel investors any entrepreneur can ask for (we have 10+ in our round). He gives you real advice & no bs. You can trust him to come through when you need him to; if you can somehow get him to be on your team, consider yourself VERY lucky ... we certainly feel that way.

Yes! Bong has the gift of non-linear strategic thinking. He'll cut right to what matters and re-frame the issue you're trying to work through. In addition, he's seen a lot of different situations and can bring to bear perspective of what's possible, what's good and what you can do from here. Bong is also the rare giver out there.

Bong pulls from a huge wealth of experience as an operator and seasoned fundraiser. He's been extremely valuable with fundraising strategy and helping us recruit/screen key hires. He was also highly recommended by his portfolio companies and entrepreneurs.
