After a great experience at 500 Startups, I’m pivoting 🙂 (i.e. my last day is Dec 30th)
Over the last 15 months, I’ve had the opportunity to work on several parts of the venture business. I helped raise the $44M Fund II (sourced our largest LP), launched the NYC coworking office, led four investments, worked on 20+ other investments, helped with portfolio management, assisted in finding/screening startups for the accelerator, organized community events and also covered several geographies (NYC/Boston/Israel).
The #500strong family is a special one, truly unique, happy to say that I was part of it and hope to stay involved in some capacity. Thanks Dave for the opportunity.
Will be taking a little bit of time off and also explore several opportunities within the startup ecosystem and will let you know in February as to which company I end up choosing to work with. If you want to get in touch, you can find me on Twitter or LinkedIn.
That’s a great 15 month run, Shai. Congratulations. Excited to hear (and chat) about your next chapter and hopefully we can get on the basketball court again soon.
