Startup Digest

Angel Investor

January 20, 2017

Hi, angels!

Here you have some of the posts I have been reading this week and hope you find some relevant stories.

Congratulation to President Donald J. Trump and to the people of The United States for a peaceful transaction of power.

I am convinced that the President and the new administration also knows that entrepreneurs backed by investors change the way we live and work. Innovations improve our standard of living. In addition to creating wealth from entrepreneurial ventures, we also create jobs and the conditions for a prosperous society.

Let's think big and dream even bigger, together, across the Atlantic!

As a curator, I want feedback on what you think should be the focus of this newsletter, and I promise your voice will be heard. Please send me the exciting news, deals, tools and feel free to connect at @vikinangels or LinkedIn.

Have a great weekend!
