The Archangel team is a rare combination of experienced start-up operators and investors with broad networks and complimentary skills. Most importantly, like the founders we back, we believe that this is our life’s work.
Ben and Quentin were very supportive, developed a deep understanding of our business, and offered balanced advice and introductions to help us scale.
They know that early stage investing is a long term relationship with many stages, and I have no trouble recommending them to founders looking for advice, support and capital.
Rayn is one of the hardest working early stage investors I know. He is proactive, listens well and has a strong network of later stage investors and founders. I always value Rayn’s judgement and directness.
If you are looking for an early stage investor that has connections and is street savvy, Rayn is your man. I am happy to co-invest with him anytime.
Ben’s advice guidance and introductions have been pivotal to the growth of Atelier. He has been exceedingly generous with his time, pointed in his counsel, and someone I feel comfortable will share an unbiased opinion whenever I need it. We are lucky to have him and Archangel on the cap table.
Ben and Archangel were the first believers in Lasertrade and helped guide our round by bringing in multiple VCs to help back their investment. They also provided helpful advice more times than we can count, and we wouldn’t be in the position we are without them.
Ever since meeting Rayn, it was clear he had the heart and empathy for the founder’s journey that make him a valued mentor and investor. I’ve been thrilled to work with him over the past few years at Blackbird and Startmate.
Rayn is the crucial angel investor. He works hard for his investments – quick meaningful input on growth and funding execution with sensible intros. At the same time he has a clear framework for how your vision fits the competitive landscape and how to carve out your niche. He lives up to the brand.
