Tyler is: investing in startups
Kepler Operator's Fund invests $2-4M/yr in startups and is open to accredited investors.
When I started investing, I was one of the first people to raise a small VC fund without going full-time. I believed I could do both things well at the same time and that being an active operator gave me more ability to find interesting companies and provide relevant help to them.
Since then, I've been one of the earliest investors in companies that are now incredibly successful, including Patreon (now worth $4B), Clubhouse ($4B), Lattice ($1B), MainStreet, On Deck, and several others.
The early-stage fund is my primary investment vehicle. We also lead occasional growth-stage deals via a syndicate. Accredited investors can back both the fund and the syndicate to get access to all my deals.
