Note from Parker Thompson

I occasionally see exceptional startups that are in the process of raising rounds and need the kind of help I can provide in terms of early stage customer development, team building, partnerships, and downstream fundraising. These deals will be pre-seed, seed, or Series A rounds. The primary focus is on great teams working on large markets, and investments will be over a broad set of categories. Please see my AngelList profile for an idea of the types of startups I have invest in previously.

Please note, I am investing both as an individual and as an Open Angel, a program created by Bloomberg Beta, the early-stage venture fund.

Bloomberg Beta created the Open Angels program to deepen relationships with a handful of angels they trust. They will back every deal I syndicate at a fixed ratio with my personal investment. (In my case, Bloomberg Beta invests $10 for every $1 from me.) While a portion of each allocation I bring will therefore be reserved for Bloomberg Beta, they do not intend to be direct investors in my portfolio companies and I will manage the syndicate's relationship with companies. Bloomberg Beta's intent is to support people they trust as investors, and extend their fund to support many more companies, not to create direct deal flow for them.

Dealflow

I will syndicate all deals through AngelList, so backers will have access to any deal I do. Allocations will vary, with preference given to pre-committed capital.
