About

Angelist was founded in 2010 by serial entrepreneur Naval Ravikant and Babak Nivi. AngelList offers investment syndicates in which startups raise money from accredited investors investing alongside prominent angel investors. The company is also looking at equity crowdfunding with unaccredited investors after the passage of the US JOBS Act. Naval cites his own experiences as a serial entrepreneur and the struggles of finding funding, as the impetus for the AngelList platform.
