Investing in Private Deals: Angels, Funds, Syndicates and More

How does your investment portfolio look these days? I’ve been doing some investing over the past couple of years, running a very small investment syndicate that has taught me a ton, and I’m excited to have someone on the show who has been doing similar things. Andrew Gluck is the Founder of Irrvrnt.com, an investment fund that invests in DTC operations companies and emerging eCommerce tech (among other things), and we’re going to be geeking out on all things investing—and so much more.

Tune in as we share the lessons we’ve learned, as well as the mistakes we’ve made in our respective investment journeys. You’ll hear us deep dive into angel investing, including what to consider before becoming an angel yourself.
