Meet Venk: When Serial Entrepreneur Turns Investor
Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, Advisor to 50+ startups, and Philanthropist 🏆
Welcome, 54+ new readers in the Iterative family! If you find our newsletter helpful, please share it with your friends & colleagues. 🙏
The inaugural Angel Investing 101 events have been a big success! We had a lot of fun connecting with the group of investors and aspiring founders in the community and enjoyed learning altogether. Thanks again, SignalFire, for sharing their insights with us — if you could not attend the last two events, you can find the recordings here (Angel Investing 101) and here (VC Ecosystem 101).
And like we said, we will continue to bring good stuff to the community, like below..👇
Events Update 📅
Venk Shukla- Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, and Advisor to 50+ startups @ 12:30 PM PST on Fri, 6/18 - RSVP
We are excited to invite Venk Shukla, Founder & General Partner from Monta Vista VC, to hear about his 20+ years of experience in angel investing and working with 50+ startups as an executive, investor, or a board member. His journey is a true inspiration for a lot of us, including some of the highlights below:
A serial entrepreneur turned an angel investor.
Founding Chairman of TiE Angels (India's largest global network of angel investors) in Silicon Valley
Founder & General Partner at Monta Vista VC, an early-stage VC fund focusing on seed-stage B2B companies
Founding President of Foundation For Excellence (FFE), awarded over $31 million of scholarships to 71,330 students pursuing Higher Education in India
We originally planned for a topic of "Disaggregation of VC industry" with him, but upon learning more about his incredible experience, we realized his journey itself would be the most valuable insight we can share with the group.
Crypto and Blockchain Panel Discussion @ 12 PM PST on Fri, 6/25 - RSVP
Stay tuned - we will be bringing panelists with diverse perspectives from funds, legal, and engineering!
And there are many more topics in the making! 🛒 Please stay tuned and reach out to us if you have any questions or know of anyone as a potential speaker to this series. At the same time, if you have interesting topics to present, please sign up below!
Iterative Venture Update
We are launching FB Alumni Founders Series in July! 🚀 We plan on inviting a panel of alumni founders in various stages to share their journey — how they got started, met the co-founder(s), raised the first round of capital, and most importantly, found meaning in what they do. Please stay tuned, and let us know if you know of anyone who’d be a great fit for the series!
Chaldal is fully subscribed! 🎉 We are in the process of closing the deal and will share updates to those who invested shortly.
