Note from Diaspora Ventures

Ran by Carlos Diaz and Marvin Liao, two well-known figures in Silicon Valley with over 500 early-stage investments under their belts, Diaspora Ventures is a new kind of fund where everyone contributes to success, whether you are a founder, partner, venture partner, or member.

After more than 35 investments, our goal remains the same: to connect ambitious European founders to the US ecosystem and democratize investing by allowing as many people as possible to participate in tech investments. 

We invest $50-$150k in pre-product, pre-traction, and pre-revenue European founders targeting the US market from day one. 

Join our community of successful founders, new or aspiring angel investors and tech execs focussed on ambitious founders from Europe tackling the US market. We're limiting our Wolf Pack to 35 spots per quarter as we are building an exclusive community. Anyone in our community can bring relevant deals and if we end up investing, we share 25% of our carry with them. We also leverage our own extensive network and experience over the last 2 decades to find deal flow that outsiders cannot access.

The performance of past deals or a lead investors' track record is not a guarantee of future returns. Venture capital fund investments are inherently risky and illiquid. Such investments involve a high degree of risk and are suitable only for sophisticated and accredited investors.
AngelList and its affiliates do not provide investment advice to investors. The information on this page should not be relied upon as research, investment advice or a recommendation of any kind. Information on this page is qualified in its entirety by the fund's Limited Partnership Agreement, Private Placement Memorandum and Subscription Agreement, which should be reviewed carefully prior to making an investment decision.

The fund lead and the fund's investment advisor have the right to waive or charge additional carry to certain investors. The fund's legal name may be different from the name used above.
This fund may accept new investors after the fund undergoes a valuation update. Certain potential investors in the fund may then have access to materially different information concerning fund value at the time of their investment.
Current or future portfolio companies in this fund may use AngelList's recruiting platform and may pay an affiliate of the fund's investment adviser for premium recruiting tools and services. This may create a potential conflict of interest for the investment adviser, which you will consent to by subscribing to the fund.
