Welcome to The Syndicate, the place where investors and startups combine to create crazy businesses and even crazier returns.
The Syndicate podcast is a deep dive on the angel investors and VCs behind the big name startups. We interview the best and brightest investors, syndicate leads, GPs, limited partners and startup founders to create an original, off the cuff discussion on startup investing.
With a focus on strategies and tactics, mistakes and massive money makers, we hope to help AngelList investors and venture capitalists create unfair advantages in their investment portfolios.
Recurring investment themes include Bitcoin & Ethereum, cryptocurrencies, Blockchain, B2B, AI & Automation, Robotics, Big Data, AdTech, Enterprise SaaS, Healthcare, IoT, Fintech, Biotech, Ecommerce and of course Mobile.
Other topics include lean startup, marketing strategies, growth hacking, business development, startup equity, fundraising, KPIs, incubators and accelerators, hiring, acquisitions, IPOs, ICOs and more.
To date we have had investors from around the globe, NYC, Boston, San Francisco ie SF, Silicon Valley, Berlin, London, Israel, Amsterdam, Singapore, China and more. A bit part of the podcast is exploring the startup ecosystems around the world and helping founders and angels better understand the pros and cons of each major tech hub.
And no tech startup podcast would be complete without continual references to the tech giants of today: Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Microsoft. These internet era monsters come up time and time in mergers, acquisitions and overall competitive landscape.
