Last week I gave an interview to CoinDesk about our recently launched Syndicate on AngelList. We covered some great topics in-depth, some of which include our long-term thesis on Bitcoin, bitcoin company investing and the crowd-funding venture capital model in general. I’ve posted the interview in its entirety below. Hope you enjoy!
1. Winklevoss Capital tweeted today to announce its AngelList syndicate. What new information was revealed today as part of the announcement?
We just launched the Winklevoss Capital syndicate on AngelList* and have already started to syndicate our first deal. We plan to give accredited investors access to the types of deals that make up our existing portfolio. Not every company we invest in will be suitable for a syndicate nor will it always be possible for us to get an allocation to syndicate, but when it’s possible and appropriate, we plan to do so. Investors who “back” our syndicate ahead of time will get priority. It is important to note that “backing” does not obligate an investor to invest in the deals we syndicate.
*disclosure: Winklevoss Capital is an investor in AngelList.
