Purpose 1 : Good relations with Family & Friend & contribute to their lives
A very old friend of mine finally found a life partner and got married in 2018. This year became a father. Its actually hard to keep in touch with old friends and it requires a special effort to always organize group dinners. Still, my experience is that its worth it each time.
Purpose 2 : Be Healthy Mind and Body
Purpose 3 :Portfolio mgmt & Work role in Society
Angel side very active. I think because we now see so many deals, we actually hit our upper limit and did 6 new investments. Also had 3 big up rounds from previous startups. Almost all grew by revenue. 30 startups now. Thats 30% of the way to the 100 startup goal. Portfolio doing well if mark to market.
Still volunteering with ITE, PEP, SWCDC. This year a bit less time due to AngelCentral but the education related projects are still very meaningful to me. Of note, spent 4-5 sessions on an ITE project. It is a highlight as it involved helping plan continuous education pathways which is something I firmly believe in.
