Ned Phillips, CEO of Bambu joined me from Singapore to discuss his experiences and views on Angel Investing. Prior to founding Bambu , Ned started angel investing in startups in Asia. While having a decent process in place to make investments is important, Ned feels like he can determine whether or not he will angel invest in an early stage company by trusting his gut and knowing within the first five minutes of meeting the founder.
Ned and I talked a lot about investment strategy, sector focus and whether it makes more sense to invest alone or in the syndicate format. Ned takes the same passion for knowledge and insight he has for company building into the Angel Investing arena.
