Rogue Insight Capital Partners with Sheel Tyle's Venture Capital Fund Amplo
Partnership delivers access to some of the world’s best deal flow.
MARKHAM, ON, November 23, 2017—One of Canada’s most innovative angel investment firms has developed an important strategic alliance with one of the world’s top investors.
Rogue Insight Capital Ltd. has formed a limited partnership with Amplo, a U.S.-based venture capital fund led by Sheel Tyle, the former head of seed investing at New Enterprise Associates (NEA), the largest venture capital firm in the world.
“Sheel Tyle is a visionary investor with proven ability to raise capital and offer strategic support to an inspiring list of transformative businesses,” said Rogue Insight Capital Co-Founder, President and CEO Suraj Gupta.
“With Sheel’s experience, extensive investor network and track-record of success investing in several leading Silicon Valley and global start-ups, we believe that this partnership will help our firm achieve its goal of connecting with cutting-edge entrepreneurs determined to change the world with disruptive products and services”, said Rogue Insight Capital Co-Founder and COO, Reetu Gupta.”
The 26-year-old Tyle’s resume is impressive. A Stanford and Harvard alumnus, he earned a position on Forbes Magazine’s prestigious Top 30 Under 30 ranking of top young entrepreneurs in 2013 and, in 2016, served as a member of President Barack Obama’s delegation to Cuba. As an angel investor, Tyle has invested in a range of successful start-up ventures including financial services firm Robinhood Markets Inc., software developer training start-up Andela, and Canadian e-commerce giant Shopify.
Amplo investors include several Fortune 500 CEOs and a who’s-who of high net-worth investors and institutions from around the world.
Amplo’s roster of active operational advisors is no less notable, including former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, former Hillary Clinton advisor Alec Ross, Robinhood co-founder Vlad Tenev, Bumble co-founder Whitney Wolfe and Andela co-founder Ian Carnevale. By investing with Amplo, Rogue Insight Capital will gain exposure to a global pool of leading start-ups and investors, and truly make their mark all around the world.
