DEAL SHARING & SYNDICATION

Often startups require more funding than any one group can provide so deals are usually shared and/or syndicated. We are a founding member of the InSync Angel Network whose mission is to:
  • Make funding faster and more efficient for entrepreneurs
  • Provide better deal flow to Network members
To get visibility on the Network you need to be referred by a member—but only with your permission. We refer companies that are compelling, even if they are not in an area that is interesting to our members.

Metacert raises $1.2 million to detect malware on enterprise bots like Slack, Microsoft Teams

We invested in Metacert earlier this year along side TiE Angels and Sierra Angels, in a round led by Moneta Ventures.

MetaCert’s patent-pending Security API checks the reputation of http requests in real time, warning consumers of potential threats before allowing known malicious web pages (or other resources) from loading inside the app. MetaCert also offers a content-based filtering service for developers that want to block pornography inside their apps.
