I’m excited to share the news that I have joined Cuebiq.  Well - I’ve actually been involved with the company for some time, beginning early last year.  I was first introduced to Cuebiq through the Angel Round Capital Fund, (thanks Jeff) in which I’ve been a Limited Partner since 2011.  The fund is a co-op of angel investors of sorts with the primary vision of investing in New York Metropolitan area early stage technology companies with strong growth potential.  As a member of the fund, you have the opportunity to invest additional capital alongside the fund, giving early stage companies the opportunity to raise significant capital.  As an active member, I also participated on the evaluation committee, selecting the best companies from those seen to move on to present to the general membership for investment.  I’ve probably seen and heard close to 500 hundred pitches over the last 6 years. While the fund has invested in some exciting companies -- including Kansas (acquired by AOL), UpNext (acquired by Amazon), Human Demand (acquired by Ignition One), YieldMo, Cirrus Data, Crowded and more -- I had yet to do an incremental investment.  That is until now (Cuebiq) and I wasn’t the only one.
