An Angel Network Built On Quality Deal Flow
And Strategic Partnerships Founded On Respect
"After spending significant time working with emerging growth companies during my career, I immediately recognized the value of importing K4 to Washington, D.C. and to allow my firm to act as a host sponsor. I was intrigued by Keiretsu’s model because the members collaborate to generate the best deal flow and carry out extensive due diligence. This model struck me as something that would be an outstanding advantage in the Washington, D.C. angel community — incredibly helpful to both investors and entrepreneurs."
