Well, the cat is out of the bag! I have partnered with fellow entrepreneur and angel investor Al Bsharah to launch a community-driven angel investment syndicate called Interlock Capital. We’ve been joined by more than 120 local and abroad entrepreneurs, operators, subject matter experts, and service providers to provide $1.25 million in investments for six companies since last summer. We’re focused on growing our investor venture partner roster, so if you want to join us, get in touch through our website. Thanks to all of YOU for your support, intros, and well wishes as we help our local companies grow, create more jobs, and have a broader impact. Come hear us speak about it at tonight’s SD Tech Hub event.
