on Saturday, 23 May 2015. Posted in News

Usually, I try to be very modest. But if you have an allergy for boasting and superlatives, please stop reading; this post is all about the rights that my team and I have earned in the last 15 years to exhibit our pride.

How we Became the World's Largest Angel-Funded Startup

How Angie Communications became the world’s largest angel-funded startup

I have been in business since 1988, joining my father and a brother in their business. I couldn’t stand being an unpaid servant to them without any potential real reward on the horizon, so I left. A few months later, in 1989, at age 19, I borrowed the equivalent of US$30,000 from my foster dad to buy my own small eatery. This man is in many ways an angel to me (a story for another time, maybe). I am not sure whether there was a term for such a lender back in those days, but now I like to refer to him as my first angel investor. I also got another investor who loaned me around $7,500, but that was a business deal.

Fast forward to 2015, in my 26 years of business I have raised a huge amount from angels. I think I have dealt with around 200 angels, ranging from investments of a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dolllars.  

 

Who the F* wants to be a Billionaire?

First... who am I? I am Neal Lachman, CEO of Angie Communications. However, I'm writing this on personal title. 

I am 44 years young, have 26 years of business experience, 15 years of which I spent on getting our company, Angie Communications, to where it is now. Well, we were ready in 2007, but then the crisis hit, and it took us until last year (2014) to finally “go for it” – that also explains the few “false starts” we got.
