I am an active angel investor in startups in Europe and the US. My value add to startups is:

– I was entrepreneur myself and grew my company to over 100 people with $15m venture capital — with all ups and downs
– With 9+ years at Google I learned how to build successful products and strong teams: Maps is one of Google’s few > 1 billion user products
– Because I live in Europe and work for an US company I understand what it means to build global products
