Angel investor

Jeremy Yap #55 Angel investor Ten years ago, Jeremy Yap left a career in derivatives trading and became an angel investor. Since then, he has grown his portfolio to more than 100 companies across Europe, Israel, and North America. His investments range from Polywork, a social network that’s taking on LinkedIn and raised $13 million in a Series A funding round in August, to the $800 million sleep-tech giant Oura Ring. Yap is known to split his time between San Francisco, Singapore, and London, and he keeps a low profile on social media. Instead of tweeting, he focuses on his investments and his advisory board positions at TravelBank and Cendana Capital, a San Francisco fund-of-funds manager. Source: businessInsider
