Angel Investor Seeking Startups Building Barriers to Entry
Re: educating founders & funders:
"that’s not a large pool of people who have the skill and bandwidth and are willing to make it a priority; people like [Yang Ventures Founder] Terrence Yang [and others] are the sliver of a minority."
"Terrence's honest, hard-headed advice and generous amounts of help have been invaluable"
-- Larry Sanger, Founder CEO, Infobitt.com and Co-founder, Wikipedia
"Terrence is an excellent advisor and investor"
-- Andrew Lee, Co-founder and CEO of Purse.io
