The Launch Angels Investment Committee selected Amino as part of its Where Fund committing very early in the Seed round.  We have a longstanding relationship with CEO Ben Anderson—even before the raise—and it was a no brainer to get on board with his vision and ideas. We’re thrilled to have gotten in on deal and are excited to see where the company is headed.
