Change the World, Level Up Your Skills, and Connect With Amazing People

If you want to level up your skills, change the world, and connect with amazing people at the same time, volunteer at GiveGetWin.

Hell, "volunteer" sounds all very old fashioned -- what you're going to be able to do is fast-paced, highly enjoyable, high impact, rapidly-skills-imparting stuff and be able to have as much personal responsibility, ability to experiment, and access to amazing people as you can handle.

Here's two roles we're explicitly looking for --

Deconstructing AngelList: How to Optimize Your Funding Profile

On DROdio

AngelList is a platform that connects entrepreneurs to angel investors to raise seed stage capital.

Out of the $1.5 million dollars in angel funding we've raised for Socialize, over $1 million came from introductions made on AngelList.  We were very early AngelList users under our AppMakr brand, with Brendan Baker doing a detailed analysis of our use of AngelList in his Anatomy of a Seed project.  I also wrote a lengthy manifesto about our fundraising experience, and when AngelList was very new I interviewed Naval Ravikant, one of the AngelList founders.

Recently, using AngelList has changed the way I've been fundraising.  Where traditionally, I've had to dedicate a block of time to fundraise full time, I can now fundraise passively, meaning just by focusing on having an optimized AngelList presence and a few specific techniques, I don't have to spend blocks of my time finding high quality angels.  That is a game changer for us -- fundraising is an incredibly distracting process, and it's especially hard to innovate and iterate on your startup when you're distracted by bolstering the company's bank account.  Being able to have angels come to me has given me a freedom as an entrepreneur that's just fantastic.

As I was talking to my friend Ben Young, CEO of Nexercise, about this sea-change in fundraising, I offered to critique his AngelList page to help him optimize it for this type of inbound passive investment.
