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!

ANGEL INVESTORS BY EXITS

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.
