JOSE LUIS MINGUEZ
A chemical engineer turned “a startup guy”.
After a 25-year career in Solvay, a Brussels-based chemical manufacturing multinational corporation, where I occupied different management positions in the areas of production and risk management, I decided to take a 180º turn in my life.
Very fond of finance (I even day-traded stocks, forex, CFDs and options for years), science & technology and all things entrepreneurship, I started my business angel activity back in 2013.
Currently, with a broadly industry and geographically diversified portfolio, I am focusing towards mentorship activities.
Most of my startups investments have been channeled through equity crowdfunding platforms, namely:
Crowdcube Spain (https://www.crowdcube.es/)
The Crowd Angel (https://www.thecrowdangel.com/)
Capital Cell (http://www.capitalcell.net/): eHealth / Biotech vertical
Seedrs (UK) (https://www.seedrs.com/): My UK portfolio
FundedByMe (SE) (https://www.fundedbyme.com/): My Nordics portfolio
Companisto (DE) (https://www.companisto.com/en): My German portfolio
BnkToTheFuture (HK) (https://bnktothefuture.com/): Blockchain / cryptocurrencies vertical
I have made some investments as well through pledge funds and ad-hoc investment vehicles, e.g.:
Lánzame Capital (http://lanzame.es/)
Idodi VC (http://www.idodivc.com/)
Sitka Capital (http://sitkacapital.com/)
