Passed an exam
Studying to be a Life Coach
I'm pleased to share that I've qualified as a coach, after 18 months of stop start studies.

I didn't do this for any real commercial purpose, just wanted to be a better investor, advisor, friend and mentor.

Thank you to everyone who got me to this point. Onwards!

Made an angel investment
This year 2021, I have:

Made 7 new direct angel investments, of which 5 have female founders.

Followed 3 syndicated investments on AngelList, all into Indian startups.

Made 1 follow-on investment.

Written my first (micro) LP cheque into a Venture Fund πŸš€


Going to take a break from angel investing for a few months to focus on the portfolio itself and other personal growth priorities πŸ™πŸ½

Spoke on a podcast
Thoroughly enjoyed the recording of this conversation with Aarish Shah.

If you jave a listen, let me know what you think! I talk about Indians with Kenyan heritage (something that Aarish, my host, and I share in common), angel investing, finance and accounting needs at startups and scaling companies, and my role at Hopin.
