Tyler Willis is probably one of the best angel investors around and has invested in seed stage companies that have gone on to raise from the likes of Index Ventures, Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures and others. Some of these investments include the likes of wildly popular ride sharing app Lyft, the incredible Patreon (now delivering 2m a month to creators) and Change.org which now has over 80m users.

We would like to say a special thank you to Mattermark for providing all the data used in the show today and you can check out Mattermark Search here!

 
In Today's Episode You Will Learn:

1.) How Tyler made it into startups and the investing industry?

2.) Where does Tyler sit on investor specialisation? Is it best to have preferred sectors and round sizes?

3.) What elements are essential for Tyler pre investment and what can be tweaked later down the line?

4.) Question from Arielle Zuckerberg: How does Tyler evaluate customer acquisition so well? What is his approach to this with potential investments and portfolio companies?

5.) Why are people so negative on the future of innovation? Is Founders Fund's 'we expected flying cars and instead got 140 characters' fair?
