2.12 Angel's focus is on Enterprise Technology. Our goal is to be the "The highest value-add to Founders per dollar invested" - we invest fast (2 meetings, answer at 12 the next day) and bring a lot of services we pay for to support Founders (exec coach, CTO mentor, Sales coaching, Culture and value program, Founder concierge etc.). We invest 100k and made 30 investments in 2021
We don't invest in consumer, clean energy, and pharma/biotech as those sectors are clearly outside of my 'circle of competence'
