I Love AngelList: A Story Of Why It’s Awesome

July15

About 8 months ago I was browsing AngelList looking for startups that were trying to solve interesting problems. And I came across one called CodeAnywhere that was working to create a online code editor and even better they were doing a freemium/premium business model which made it accessible to the world. This meshes perfectly with our goal of making it easier to build online. I left this comment and then contacted them through AngelList:

And now 8 months later I’m happy to announce that one of our companies did a big investment in CodeAnywhere to help them do even more. News on TechCrunch (and TNW).

I love solving problems and that is the entire purpose of startups, find a problem and solve it! The process is challenging, difficult, sometimes frustrating, and usually attracts people who have an interesting temperament. AngelList is like the google of the startup eco-system and I love it!

And I’ve spent the last 3 weeks in Split and they certainly choose a great place to start a global startup :)

PS, anyone interested in the Croatian startup scene should come next year to the Shift Conference here in Split, it won’t disappoint!

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
