    Jed Ng, Angel School - Angel Investing Pro Tips (S3E37)

    Jed Ng, Angel School - Angel Investing Pro Tips (S3E37)

    Jed is the Founder of AngelSchool.vc. As a Tech Operator, he built the world’s largest API Marketplace with an a16z-backed startup.

    Jed began investing in startups in 2016. Like most angels, he staked his own capital. Despite having never worked in VC, he got his first exit in 2018. Jed has also backed 2 seed-stage startups that became Unicorns ($1BN+ valuation).

    People started asking “what are you investing in next?”, so he began sharing his deals with other investors. Since 2020, Jed's investor network has grown to 1200+ organically. The Angel School syndicate also wrote a $1MN check into a startup.

    Jed fundamentally believes venture investing is a learnable skill. As a self-taught angel, he has experienced how daunting and lonely it is. This podcast episode discusses the foundational angel investing skills, and suggests a learning path.
