I Invested in My First Startup—And It Was Terrifying
I invested in a startup for the first time as an angel investor, and, honestly, the process was…strange. While public market investing feels comfortable and “safe,” private investments feel like pulling the lever on a slot machine with a few thousand bucks on the line.
We're taking Rich Girl Nation behind the scenes of the process, with three guests this week. I'm joined by Arman Hezarkhani, the founder & CEO of Parthean (https://www.parthean.com/) about my investment and what I did wrong. I also chatted with Steph Mui, the founder & CEO of PIN (https://www.getpin.xyz/) and Erica Wenger, founder of Park Rangers Capital (https://www.parkrangerscap.com/).
