"I’m personally interested in making things easier for startups, and Angelist does that. Getting investment for a startup is a black box, and still so much of it is unknown to many new founders – so breaking that open is going to be a good thing,"
And that’s exactly the reason why I am so madly excited to join. Funding is difficult and annoying for everyone, and that needs to be changed. If you’re a European startup, you should go and read the Europe FAQ on AngelList.
With Phil, AngelList has recruited the best person to do this job in Europe. Congrats, my friend, I’ll be watching (and rooting for) you.
