Top Angel investing (JD made a list(kinda))

Investor Network by JD

“How to Lie with Statistics that #9,863 in ALL Books on Amazon is a must and funny read! I am sure they have been number one in their category than any of the books I had at number one (for 30 – 180 minutes),” say JD Morris.

Sadly I am not David Morin at #31 with 57 investments, but for the month of April David Morris (aka JD) invested with friends and family in several deals in April (TBA).  Our friends and family have $5 million plus of dry powder for funds to early-stage deals.  Between 2 pm and 5 pm April 1, 2019, we most likely did the most investing in 2019 = we can create our own list with Crunchbase’s help!

We all know that venture capital can be a tricky beast. Best exits and timelines are not always concrete when funding happens. Some of the biggest startups with multi-billion dollar valuations have kept raising money in new rounds, without selling or going public. Those may prove to be some of the best investments in the long term. Yet, it is important for entrepreneurs to know which potential partners have had real success in exits.

Here are the five angel investors, in order of the number of exits:

  1. Fabrice Grinda (48 exits)
  2. Ron Conway (48 exits)
  3. Naval Ravikant (38 exits)
  4. Paul Buchheit (37 exits)
  5. David Tisch (35 exits)

Ron Conway and Reid Hoffman also have an over 50% exit rate versus the number of investments they’ve made.

IN Deck – Realstir ( disruptive technology ) – raising capital based on our new strategy

IN on Deck is talking about just one deal today (kinda). We will be working with our friends, family offices, and referrals to invest together in Realstir through a LLC. Red Hook Capital and Investor Network are merging resources to create new company (TBA) and Realstir is our beta client. Contact us today to learn more! +1 858-869-9483 anytime!

I have looked at Compass raises $75 million at $1 billion+ valuation, Boomtown raised $30 million, and list goes on and on (see .jpg and data dump). No time to cross my t’s or dot my i’s as here is what I call download / data dump / brain bump / etc!

RealStir and it amazing technology. Yes Compass, Boomtown, Zillow, airbnb, RedFin, etc. are all positioning themselves for the future, but how fast can the position themselves for next generation of technology? Realstir is ready to launch from it beta status. Contact me to learn more via +1 858-869-9483 or look at my LinedIn profile for contact information!


FUNNY STORY: I can remember day I thought how can Waze compete against Google Maps and MapQuest (who?). Waze was sold to Google for billions. You have to understand that once a company builds a platform, it is often stuck on that technology. VBRO was like Craiglist like technology until it was acquired and website was scrapped to compete against airbnb! I believe Realstir technology is positioned to change the map and market space. I know lot the above players are stuck with old technology and mindset!
