The only part I disagree with is the “VCs hate AngelList” idea. I think it’s the opposite—they’re all over it like white on rice. What’s not to like about high-quality dealflow in your inbox?
Personally, I’m juiced to see firms like Kleiner, Sequoia, Khosla, A16Z, and other “Gods of VC” use the site.
Okay, enough preamble, who is actually investing?
Mike broke the news about which investors are taking intros. Now I want to break some news about which VCs have actually invested via AngelList.
We don’t have a good way to track who is investing in what. AngelList makes the connection and gets out of the way. But here are a few of the VCs that we know sourced (or reconnected with) a startup via AngelList and then made an investment:
I’m psyched these investors are using AngelList and I’m even more psyched to see startups like Uber, Yipit, Wanderfly, Branchout and a billion more use AngelList to raise money. That’s why we’re really here—AngelList is a platform for startups.
