Why you should care
Because one of the Valley’s best-known investors thinks this is his best bet right now.
There’s a good chance that at some point today you will use a product that exists, in part, because of Ron Conway. Conway isn’t simply an investor. He’s an early investor, which means he puts his money into startups when they’re just a few people and a big idea. No surprise that the role is dubbed angel investor—who else would give you money at that stage?—and Conway is one of the best known in Silicon Valley. Over the years, he’s helped launch companies like Google, PayPal and Facebook. Full disclosure: Conway’s also an investor in OZY.
In this clip of his OZY interview, Conway talks about his favorite investment right now (besides OZY, of course).
