Google Angels Spread Their Wings

Apologies for not posting that much lately. I’ve been swamped with work. However, I am coming up for air and have a really cool project to share with you all. It’s sort of an angel investing extravaganza.

The heart of the package is a feature story and a super-duper two-page info-graphic detailing the ascendance of the Google angel investors–all of the wealthy folks such as Aydin Senkut, Chris Sacca and Andrea Zurek who have come out of Google and are seeding the next wave of tech innovation. Silicon Valley has always been fueled by angel investors coming out of successful startups, but the Google alumni network is the most powerful network the Valley has ever seen, I believe. Check out the story here, written by myself and Kimberly Weisul.

We’ve also compiled a ranking of the most powerful angels in all of tech investing through a partnership with private company researcher YouNoodle. Angel investors are playing an increasingly important role in the economy so I am stoked we are first to market with this kind of list. In case you are wondering, the top three in our ranking our Chris Dixon, Ron Conway and Reid Hoffman.

Last but not least, we’ve got an email interview with Peter Thiel, the godfather of the other prominent Valley network, the PayPal Mafia.

    The internet community is coming together. We can all help each other get what we want. I recently went on a reality TV show called Dragon’s Den where you pitch to 5 billionaires your business opportunity.

    We just made history by turning a million dollars down. We could not agree on the percentage of equity. It would be wonderful to meet the Google Angles who might now ant so much equity.
