AngelList’s role in the metamorphosis of the venture capital business. I think they are the new Rome of tech startup venture capital, because “all roads lead to it”. Whether you are a startup raising or planning to raise money, or a venture capitalist looking to invest in startups, you probably won’t complete your next transaction without some discussion at least, about whether AngelList is part of it or not. I was first introduced to AngelList in December 2011 by Fred Wilson, as he gave us his first investment commitment for Engagio. He introduced me to Naval Ravikant, who asked me to register on AngelList to get the process going.
