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 Datanomix. It is our 15th investment so far (portfolio here).
Co-Founder Greg McHale and I have crossed paths a few times in the digital world. He reached out as his round was coming together.
Some of the angels already committed to the round included Cheng Wu and Cory von Wallenstein, entrepreneurs with whom Eric and I have worked previously. Another touch point was Steve Noyes, a reference for Greg and who was an amazing executive at a start-up I had backed years ago. So, getting to a quick bottom-line answer was very easy in this case.
Datanomix is building a new software platform for manufacturing environments (details here). That was interesting. But, what intrigued me the most was Greg: he has overcome much and achieved a great deal.
Thank you, Greg, for letting us invest! Thank you, Cheng, Cory and Steve, for your perspectives!
