Jay Manickam

Angel Investor at ATX Seed Ventures

I’m a serial entrepreneur since birth. I absolutely love the entire new venture creation process – from ideation to validation to optimization to scaling. I’m specifically interested in the consumer internet space, especially marketplace models in under-served niches.

As an operator for most of my career, I value working with exceptional teams that employ rapid, iterative testing methodologies and data-driven decision-making frameworks. I’ve lead finance, accounting, customer operations, human resources, product, and marketing teams in my career.

I’ve raised over $40 million in late-stage venture, early-stage ventures, seed, and angel financing for various projects. However, my real passion is in growing engaged employees, defining and creating new online consumer products, and creating amazing cultures that transcend the workspace. I also enjoy mentoring and advising young entrepreneurs and occasional angel investing in concepts of interest to me with dynamic and hungry teams.
