Why Angel Invest? Impact Invest!

I started angel investment in 2016 and it was mainly because I wanted to be part of the startups revolution in my home country. Angel investing provides me a path for:

  • Helping and mentoring great talents and providing support through my network
  • Growing my network of innovative entrepreneurs and fellow investors
  • Acquiring new business skills and using my current skills in different ways
  • Knowing about the latest and greatest in areas of impact

Areas of Interest

I Angel Invest in areas related to Healthcare, CleanTech, Artificial Intelligence, Semiconductors, Security and Platform businesses. Those are the same areas I also invest in within the public market.

Below are some of the companies I invested in.
