With over 20 years starting and investing in companies, KP has made thousands of connections and partnerships with many expert investors in the tech industry. These partnerships have grown into private equity and company incubators yielding aggressive IRRs and impressive M&A offers.

“I have known K.P. For several years, but it was not until I brought him in to speak with some of Africa’s top leaders and entrepreneur’s when I learned the true breadth of his knowledge. He spoke from experience and shared practical insights and best practices we could all immediately utilize in our respective organizations. His relaxed style promoted great questions and discussion. I will certainly be inviting him back to speak.”

“KP did what KP does. A great job. KP set up his presentation by saying being opportunistic is not an investment thesis. He then proceeded to share with all the angel investors present the significant elements of a focused investment thesis. The stories which exemplified each element were spot on! Thanks KP.”

Angel Investor Accelerator

It is said that the first step to becoming an angel investor is to assume that you will lose all your money. Daunting, yes, but with the mentorship of investor veteran KP and partners, you can learn the tools required to navigating the choppy waters of capital investment. You will become familiar with things like sector focus, destructive red-flags, and appropriate IRR goals. A few lucky investments won’t make you a successful angel investor, but a clear philosophy is a definite prerequisite. As long as you are willing to challenge your views, this hands-on workshop is designed to deliver insight into the steps necessary to minimize risk in your investment.

“KP recently spoke to the Atlanta cohort of Pipeline Fellowship on the topic of investor exit strategies. As new angel investors in the Atlanta ecosystem, KP posed challenging, introspective questions to encourage us to develop a thesis, akin to a traditional investment policy statement. KP shared his vast knowledge and experiences in a casual, open forum format.”
