• Javier Soto

    Originally from Spain, now living in Seattle. I am passionate about technology and invest in early stage companies (pre-seed to Series A) located in the Pacific Northwest.

    I am sector agnostic though I favor software over hardware, IT over HC. More interested in strong customer discovery & development than patents. Clear plans and milestones than lofty ambitions. Insights than moats. Complete teams rather than rock stars. Self awareness v. genius. Above all, for me, customer focus takes precedence ahead of technology.

    I invest individually or in syndication with friends and colleagues from different angel networks. I am always happy to share what I have learned as angel investor and help founders brainstorm about your startup vision, plans and pitch.
