I'm a VC & angel investor with 120+ deals done. My fund, Asymmetry Ventures, focuses on seed-stage deals. I also founded and currently manage an AngelList syndicate of 1600 accredited investors. Our syndicate deploys checks of $100K - $300K into exceptional early-stage ventures. I love deep tech (e.g. life sci/biotech; med devices & healthcare; AI; hardware & IoT). And in general, I love startups with strong early traction (ideally revenues - but user and usage traction are great too).
As a rule, I don't invest in pre-seed companies. But I'd be thrilled to meet talented founders at the pre-seed stage, and get to know them as they take early steps in building their ventures!
