When you become an angel investor, you’re making a bet on companies – and the people
behind them – when they’re just starting out.
You’re saying to them…
“I believe in you. I have faith in what you’re doing. And I want to help you change the world.”
Because any company that ever made it – they
didn’t do it on their own. They all had angel investors backing them from day one.
And those early angel investments helped create thousands of new jobs. And they gave millions of folks a shot at a better life.
They had one angel investor – a guy named Dave Marquardt.
In 1981, he owned around 5% of the company.
Thanks to his bet on Microsoft, Dave was rewarded with tens of millions
And today, Microsoft employs 163,000 people.
Then, there’s Google.
One of their early backers was another Dave – David Cheriton.
He was a college lecturer who cut a check for Google from his front porch.
Today, he’s a billionaire.
And last year, Google provided jobs for 121,000 workers.
Or take my company – FUBU.
My mom was my first angel investor.
She remortgaged her home to help me when I needed it most – right at the beginning.
And her bet paid off as FUBU grew into a $6 billion
business and employed hundreds of people in 27 countries around the world.
Angel investors are the unsung heroes behind the companies that changed America.
And they played a part in helping some of our most brilliant innovations become a reality.
Today, you have a shot to become an unsung hero of tomorrow.
I’m launching the boldest mission of my entire career.
My mission is called…
