I’ve been a history student, founder, banker, analyst, manager, investor, and adviser. I’m a father, husband, friend, brother, uncle and son. I take pictures, play guitar poorly, and cook a bit. Mostly, I invest in and advise founders and startups. I’m currently building something new. We call it Magid & Co. I was a partner at Y Combinator for 7.5 years where I funded over 1000 companies. I built something called the Series A program and helped founders raise 200+ Series As (and Bs). I’ve written about that quite a bit. I’m trying to write up the rest of what I’ve learned.
This is roughly how I look now —>
