Gil Penchina On What It Takes To Build The World’s Largest AngelList Syndicate

Recently I had the opportunity to catch up with Gil Penchina, founder at, the man behind the largest AngelList Syndicate and the network containing some the largest AngelList syndicates.

In what turned out to be a thought provoking interview we discussed a range of topics including how Gil built the largest AngelList syndicate and enticed so many entrepreneurs to join his syndicate; why traditional venture models are broken and how AngelList can prove as a disruptive solution to this 60 year old unchanged model of venture.

Penchina also discussed how investors add value and what startups should look for in their investors. For Penchina, the next decade will see the creation of a more democratic venture capital and early stage investment industry, and Flight is at the forefront.
