Note from Pascal Levy-Garboua

I am an angel investor in around 90+ Companies, including Checkr, Wag, Womply, Notion, Caviar (acquired by Square), Origin, Wit.Ai (acquired by Facebook), etc.... My goal has been to be one of their most helpful investor, and while I have not accomplished this 100% of times, most of my portfolio Company founders could agree that I have accomplished this goal. This has allowed me to get pro-rata or super pro-rata in many of my portfolio Companies as they grew - and learn a lot along the way.


My 45 first investments came out of my personal "fund", while the following 45 were made via a few angel funds raised on angel list.

I already returned 100% of my invested capital on my personal investments, with quite a few very promising Companies still in play (Checkr, Wag, Womply, Origin, Siren, 7Cups, Headout, Notion) with valuations in the 9 digits range. Follow ups have come from investors such as: Accel, A16z, August, Data collective, DCM, Floodgate, Foundation Capital, Founders Fund, Google Ventures, Greylock, GGV, Khosla, Social+Capital, USV, etc...


I invest in Companies that can build network effects - whether we are talking about marketplaces, OSes, aggregators, data Companies, or platforms. Over time, I have over-indexed in several categories, like local commerce and on-demand, advanced manufacturing and 3D printing, new media, vertical AI software, crypto finance, real estate tech, but I am always open to new themes or ideas and bold ideas.


-------------

Anyone considering an investment in one of my syndicates should understand that these investments represent absolute risk, and there is a meaningful risk that they can lose all their money. There is no guarantee of a "soft landing" or acquisition if things do not go as planned, especially at the stage we are investing. In addition, there is no guarantee that, even in a successful company, there will be opportunity for liquidity for the shares represented and an investor should be prepared to have their capital committed for ten or more years without liquidity.

Dealflow

Investments in this syndicate come from three main sources:

  • Pro-rata or super pro-rata of past investments in my angel and fund portfolio (typically Series A, B, or C)
  • Larger allocation I am taking in pre-seed and seed investments I am making out of my angel fund.

Pascal is the real deal. He helped me A TON since he started advising me at my previous company that got acquired. Always right advices, always finding solutions, always sharp. I had a great roster of investors, but Pascal was the smartest one, and by far.

In a guerilla / startup mode, you will want Pascal on your team. He knows what your market is, he knows if your business plan makes sense and if it doesn't he knows how to fix it. And then he will throw in the amount of work needed to make it happen.

Pascal has a great understanding of marketplaces and has been an amazing value-add investor for Asseta. I highly recommend working with him.
As an investor, Pascal is a true asset. His experience as an entrepreneur and his knowledge about various aspects in business is extremely helpful. Best of all, Pascal doesn't mind getting his hands dirty and assisting in any way that he can.
