Key Quotes From Rashad Moore

  • “Let me do $1,000 a company and now that's $30,000 total over five or six years, that's a Prius. Right? Right. That's a, that's a Honda accord. That's, that's attainable and financially responsible. Right. So I'm like, look, if you're driving, if you're driving a, any SUV, then you can be an Angels investor.”
  • “If you think about the national income, household income is roughly only like $50,000 or $60,000 a year. We need to be cognizant of that as well. Um, but I will say though, I guess the ultimate point is that there are way more people who could be investing in private companies as an accredited investor then, then the, then our population gives us credit for, if that makes sense.”
  • “I mean, the rule of thumb is you should be able to lose it and not be stressed if you did lose it.”
  • “If I didn't make any money any of the companies ever invested in… I've learned so much in just working with some of the world's best entrepreneurs.”
  • “So you also have to remember the Angels Investors. We do this in our spare time, it's not our main job. It's not what we get paid to do.”
  • “There's only gonna be one big winner in each of these categories or two of each of the different categories. So if you invest in five companies and who are doing media hosting or something like that, then well, you've kind of over-indexed in that space a little too much.”
  • “Your ability to raise money fast does not necessarily correlate to how successful of a company you're going to be.”
