Angeles Investors announced that David Olivencia stepped into his full-time role as CEO of Angeles Investors this week.
“David has a long passion for early-stage investing, and as a member of the IrishAngels has invested in over 70 startups, including two unicorns and more than 10 with valuations over $100 million”, said the organization.
“In three short years, and with the benefit of David’s leadership, Angeles Investors has grown to over 150 members, making it one of the fastest-growing angel investing groups in the world. We open 2023 anticipating accelerated growth for Angeles Investors, including more opportunities for our members, portfolio companies, sponsors, and partners”.
Olivencia was a managing director at Accenture, leading the Accenture Cloud Program for the company’s health and public service customers. Prior to Accenture, Olivencia held various technology and business strategy leadership positions of increasing responsibility at Nippon Telegraph & Telephone (NTT), Ford Motor Co., Oracle, Verizon and Softtek.
He is a global business strategy and information technology executive who has delivered significant business outcomes at Global 500 organizations and prominent international nonprofits.
Angeles Investors began with a single pitch night in September 2019. Hosted at one of Chicago’s WeWork locations, a group of Hispanic and Latinx angel investors and venture capitalists gathered at a small executive table in a small conference room.
“All of us were there for the same reason: to listen to pitches from three start-ups with Hispanic and Latinx founders or cofounders”, said the organization in its LinkedIn page.
