AngelList announced yesterday that it partnered with CSC Venture Capital, the US arm of China Science & Merchants Investment Management Group is giving $400 million to invest in startups on AngelList. The new fund represents a huge increase in capital directed towards the online funding platform and it’s the largest-ever single investment by a Chinese private-equity firm in a U.S. fund. My question is: How will this disrupt seed investing and/ore AngelList? Or will they? What are the pros & cons of this new partnership?
Too many founders wing it when it comes to financials; they have no idea how to explain them to investors. In this course, we’ll teach you how to build a basic financial model; read financial statements; and understand cash flow, balance sheets, and income statements.

Angel List is Klugey.  I see this as yet more evidence of a bubble.

Multiple discussions with subjects follow regarding Chinese investment as well.
