My Investment Story: Robinhood

I knew I’d be investing in Robinhood within 5 minutes of meeting the team. Vlad and Baiju the founders showed up to the breakfast meeting in San Francisco wearing Google Glasses (RIP). It was back in 2013, and Robinhood was just some screenshots and a vision. There was no SEC approval yet. I had a feeling the market was ready for a mobile first, simple brokerage app. Today, Robinhood is the fast growing financial app ever and has raised over $60 million.
