Through the Angel Invest Boston Podcast we seek to learn more about the creation of world-changing startups. Boston’s unique concentration of academic talent and entrepreneurial culture offer bountiful opportunities for conversations with people who have funded and built innovative companies. By recounting engaging stories, angels and founders convey lessons they have learned. These narratives illustrate the rewards of helping founders commercialize transformative technologies. We hope you too will find our dialogues entertaining and instructive.
I’m Sal Daher, host of the Angel Invest Boston Podcast. After immigrating to Boston as a child and attending Belmont High School, I studied engineering at MIT and Stanford. Decades of work in international finance followed. During that time, I invested in a handful of ventures founded by friends and acquaintances. Now, I’m a member of Walnut Ventures and MIT Angels and spend most of my time as an angel investor taking stakes in about a dozen startups per year.

Possibly my all-time favorite podcast

Sal is the "menschiest", most passionate, most knowledgeable angel I've ever encountered. Any startup scene would be lucky to have a mentor of his caliber in their midst. Lucky for us, he puts it all into some of the best interviews on the topic of startups out there. I can't overstate just how valuable it is to see other startups who are perhaps just a little bit ahead of us, plugging away and talking about their experiences. Although it's always great to hear from a brilliant founder that has managed to grow their company into the ever elusive unicorn, it's particularly valuable to see someone with the right smarts and the right passion plugging away like the rest of us. And Sal is right there along for the ride, filling in the details, drawing from his extensive "institutional knowledge" of the history of startups in Boston and analyzing the implications of the twists and turns his guests describe as their own startup comes to life. He also excels at bringing things full circle by with his encyclopedic knowledge of the startup community in Boston and beyond. Nobody trying to build their vision into reality should miss this podcast. And Sal, let us know if you want to take it on the road sometime. Maybe you can escape a little bit of the Boston weather for some sun and Sangria here in Lisbon ;-)
