Premoney 46: Phase Zero & Chek
New year, new co's: Company spending & Healthcare data mgmt
Welcome back everyone!!! I sincerely hope you were able to find a few days over the holiday to relax, recover, and get ready for a glorious 2022. You’ll notice that I took ~2 months off (ironically to give me time back to fundraise for Swapstack) of publishing, and I’m extremely excited to be back at it. Looking forward to growing with you all this year!
My audacious Premoney goal this year:
As I mentioned in my Premoney vision, one of my goals is to turn the newsletter into a fund (I like to think I had this idea before Packy McCormick made it cool). As part of that process, I did a look-back analysis halfway through the year to showcase the quality of the companies featured.
This years goal is to invest is >10 companies that I feature on Premoney (personally, through an SPV or via a more structured fund). If you’re interested in being involved in this process, I’d love to hear from you!
