about this episode

Gil Penchina arrived in Silicon Valley in the late ’90s with few contacts and a general interest in investing in startups. How did he become one of the top angels in tech? First, he attended 2 networking events a night, nearly every night, for a year. He was in early on PayPal, LinkedIn, and now is leveraging his influence through AngelList syndicates. He and Jason reveal how their growing influence with founders is making venture capitalists nervous, throwing elbows. This is a can’t-miss interview for would-be angels and startups looking to get into the heads of their would-be investors.
