My dream portfolio in 2019

Each of the past few years I’ve made a list.

In 2018 and 2017 I wrote down what my dream venture portfolio would be, assuming I had the capital and they’d take my money.

Updates since the last post:

  • All companies are still alive and most are thriving.
  • Clearfactr was acquired by Goldman Sachs
  • Upgraded was acquired by Ticketmaster
  • Lambda School raised a mega-round and is disrupting education


Bedrock Ocean Exploration: I have been an Anthony DiMare fan since we both went through the same accelerator program with our companies back in 2013. met the founder of Kloke when he was my Uber driver in the fall and instantly knew that he is a star. an industry veteran with deep expertise solving a problem he is knowledgeable about.
