Awake (or AwakeVC) was started by Amit Rathore, yours truly.

I started Awake because I got tired of “venture” types taking advantage of startup founders, and of “investment bankers” cheating innovating founders. This type of stuff is incredibly common in Silicon Valley, and no doubt in other parts of the world. Awake changes that.

AwakeVC is Awakened Value Co-creation, and we work with founders and startups to help them succeed and to create large value together. The idea of using technology to enable collaboration at massively parallel scale is a simple idea, one that forms the basis of the new Internet economy, powered by Awake.

The following reading may help shedding some light on the type of universe Awake is creating:
