Welcome to the StartupStudios.co Podcast, featuring people who build startups!
This week, Raj and Saif interview Ali Mahrouyan.
Ali is a veteran in the Silicon Valley and Silicon Beach ecosystems where he's had a front-row seat to incubators, accelerators, angels, and early-stage VCs. Ali details his 20-year experience as the Executive Director and Chief of Staff for a well-known family office that has been an early investor in some of the world's best startups and coworking spaces. As someone who's seen the good, bad, and ugly side of mismatched partnerships between founders and investors, Ali shares tips for aspiring founders, angel investors, and VC limited partners to protect themselves from predatory practices without sacrificing future upside.
Our longest episode so far, this is going to be a must-watch segment for aspiring founders, angel investors, and future VC LPs!
