Note from Thomas Korte

I am the founder of AngelPad, a San Francisco and NYC based mentorship program for founders. This is a pro-rata investment syndicate for A-rounds and beyond.

AngelPad exits include @MoPub (Twitter), Astrid (Yahoo), Adku (Groupon), Shoplogic (Bloomreach), Hall.com (Atlassian) and others.

AngelPad has pro-rata rights in all of its companies. I evaluate companies at every funding and decide to participate or not. If I invest, my syndicate will always co-invest.

Current companies of AngelPad include: @Postmates, @Buffer, @Vungle, @upconsel and 100+ others.

This syndicate is not included in the initial seed-stage @AngelPad investment. If you want to invest at that stage, please message me.

Dealflow

All my deals are pro-rata investments in companies that I have backed in the pre-seed and seed stage. I know the companies and their investors very well and am involved as an informal advisor to the founding team.

Thomas and his colleagues are doing an awesome work over at AngelPad, and we at SoftTech are glad to support him and his companies.
