Angel Investing

“If you know that you are vulnerable to prediction errors, and accept that most “risk measures” are flawed, then your strategy is to be as hyper-conservative and hyper-aggressive as you can be instead of being mildly aggressive or conservative.” Nassim N. Taleb

Following the Taleb’s Barbell allocation strategy, I’ve decided to put the vast majority of my capital in safe assets, and invest the remaining small part in moonshot investments. Angel investing in tech start-ups seems to be the place where I have the biggest unfair advantage and interest. So here I am…

If you fit the above criteria, you can send me a brief intro message here, making sure to mention the following:

  • The problem you want to solve
  • Your solution
  • Your current stage (business & product)

If you don’t fit the above criteria, you can still write to me or pitch your startup to Yakumi, the Angel platform I’m part of.
