Goldmine!

This is my first ever review for a podcast and I listen to a lot of them! Jason has created something truly special here.

A goldmine of information, all for free. Listen to the episodes with Ben Narasin, Cyan Bannister, Satya Patel: packed with helpful tips, different perspectives and lots of lessons.

I love the format, how each VC/angel talks about their failures, what worked for them, what did not, etc

Jason only asks that we review this to get more visibility and it’s a very reasonable ask. Also, the hustling never stops :-)

Back his syndicate!

Awesome Podcast!!!

Jason, host of the Angel podcast, highlight all aspects of Venture Capital, Startup Investing and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!

Getting in NYC Gett ,

My new showering/hair drying/relaxing/working out best buddy!

(I didn’t include ‘driving’ because I live in NYC)
As a first time, early stage founder I find Jason’s style to be easily understood with a great flare for finding those nuggets of stories that are the gold of life, I find he focuses on everything I can’t find with research, the essence of the person behind the VC. What motivates and drives them on a deeper, human level.
More! More! More!
