Note from Tom Williams
My investment thesis is simple: Invest where founder/market fit is strong, where I have a personal passion for seeing the entrepreneur achieve their vision and when I believe the business aligns to venture economics. Having worked tirelessly to support every entrepreneur I invest in, I am increasingly trusted by entrepreneurs and co-investors alike to be a value-added investor, thus earning my right to invest. By supporting my syndicate, you'll know that I'm doing everything I can to help ensure their success.

Any company that I decide to syndicate will be a Company that I am incredibly passionate about and will do everything in my power to support.

Tom is an incredible asset to Plastiq. He is an angel investor and advisor and puts in as much or more work into the company as any of my major institutional investors.

Tom is smart, connected, honest, and eager to help others. After interacting with him a lot over the last year, I find myself patterning some of my habits after his good example. I have over 60 high-octane investors in CareGuide, and Tom is consistently one of the first I turn to when I need help.

Tom and I got connected through a mutual friend and I'm delighted we did. He became an investor and has always had incisive and useful advice. He is an entrepreneur so understands what founders are going through. He is direct but not harsh, which is a rare quality I seek in investors.
Tom has been a value-add angel to Survata: supportive, helpful with intros, insightful with advice. Most importantly, he's a good friend to founders. Doing a startup himself gives him a perspective and attitude that not all investors have.

As an angel investor, Tom punches way above his weight. He's not our biggest investor, but he is certainly the most active and proactive. I'm not sure how he finds the time, but I'm grateful that he does. I highly recommend him if you can get him!
Tom's a huge value-add angel - from investor intros to fundraising advice, Tom's always been super helpful and continues to proactively help as we scale up.
Moral authority on all things start-up.

Tom is not only knowledgable - from high-level strategy to the most tactical - but he also clearly enjoys helping me win. I can pull him in on anything (fundraising, product, growth, HR, personal, etc.), and he's available any time, day or night. If I...more
His wealth of experience in advising startups and his investments in the past.
