Angel Investment: Cobu

We’re happy to announce that our family angel program (back 80+ entrepreneurs over eight years and donate all gains to charity; details here) has invested in Cobu. It is our 14th investment so far (portfolio here).

We were introduced to Founder Ben Pleat by Bob Preble, who was the first VP Engineering at Bit9 (now called Carbon Black), one of my VC investments.

Ben and I know some people in common, and they all raved about him. As another entrepreneur told me: “Cobu quietly and constantly just makes progress–they just grind away and execute.”

Cobu is a real estate tech and services company, focused on building community in apartment buildings (more here). Ben has built an incredible group of advisors and investors, and we really liked his resilience.

Thank you, Ben, for letting us invest!  Thank you, Bob, for the intro!
