Note from Rick

I have been an entrepreneur for the past 15 years in Silicon Valley. I founded 3 companies including Tickle (sold to Monster for $100 million), Talk.co (acquired by Hearst Corporation) and BranchOut (800 million professional profiles, acquired by 1-Page: 1PG.AX). I have raised $58 million in venture funding from Accel Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Mayfield Fund, Norwest Venture Partners, August Capital, Floodgate and a dozen top tier angels. I have personally invested in more than 40 startups including SnapChat, Reddit, AngelList, Lumosity, Sprig, Wanelo, August Lock, Poshmark, AltSchool, Luxe, ApartmentList, Radius, Honk, MassDrop, OpenDoor, HoneyBook, Wavii (@Google), Swell (@Apple), FitMob (@ClassPass). I'm also an LP in Accel Partners, Binary Capital, Rothenberg Ventures, Velos Partners, GovTech Fund and Maven Ventures. My deal flow comes from personal relationships built over the last 15 years with entrepreneurs, other angel investors and venture capitalists.

Co-advisor of company Rick Marini advised
Rick is a great investor. He made a decision in the first meeting and was immediately helpful in making introductions. Rick is also one of the most well-connected people in the Valley and passionate about helping other entrepreneurs.
Love this guy...we work super closely on a bunch of deals. He's great!
Rick is an experienced entrepreneur and operator, good guy, and very easy to work with as an angel investor.
Rick is one of our earliest investors in our company. He has always been there for us when we need advice, intros, and feedback. We only hope that all of our future investors will be as supportive as Rick.
Rick is a tremendous person and entrepreneur. I've had the honor of talking shop with Rick many times throughout the years and his unique perspective and approach always provides value. Rick is a true asset as an investor or advisor to any team that's lucky enough to receive his support....more
Rick invested in my startup, and has been one of our most helpful investors - he makes decisions quickly and has great product insight. He's also well-connected, offers to introduce relevant people and follows through right away. Love working with him!
Rick is an advisor and investor in my company. He's a founder's friend having experienced it all as an entrepreneur and investor. Glad he's on my side.
Rick is amazing to work with, and one of the nicest guys you'll meet in the Silicon Valley. As an investor in Scripted, he frequently goes above and beyond by being generous with his time, connections, and expertise. He's a great guy to know, a great guy to bounce ideas off of, and...more
Loyal, approachable, and gives honest feedback. There aren't many investors or advisors like Rick, and we're lucky to have him involved in Scripted.
Rick is awesome! Any founder would be lucky to have him as an angel. He has been there, done that and seen everything from start to exit. He is well connected, helpful and super founder friendly.
One of the greatest guys in the industry. Count myself lucky to know him.
Rick is one of the brightest and smartest people I have come across and as nice and caring about people and their projects as they come. Super creative, no bs, just makes magic happen, while having a good time. If you have a chance to work with him jump on it!
Great investor and advisor. He is prompt and professional, and always on point.
Rick's advice was always considered, wise and much appreciated in a room full of differing opinions. If I could only go back in time and follow all of it!
Rick's fab. Full of energy, enthusiasm. Before asking him to advise I did some deep DD and everyone I spoke to said good things.
Rick is a great investor because he sources his ideas and connections from 15+ years of entrepreneurial experience. Despite phenomenal success (e.g., selling Tickle for $100M+ and raising $60M+ for companies he's founded) he is humble and never afraid to get his hands dirty in the real work...more
