January 29, 2014 KAYWEB Angels names Aron Schoenfeld as Entrepreneur-In-Residence

NEW YORK: New York angel investment firm, KAYWEB Angels has named one of its portfolio company founders as its first Entrepreneur-In-Residence (EIR).

Aron Schoenfeld, who is CEO of fast-growing events web application, Do It In Person, accepted the offer of KAYWEB Angels CEO Haig Kayserian to join his company’s growing team, which includes General Manager John Buckman, an all-star Board, and a strong web/mobile design and development staff.

“Aron has been an exemplary CEO of one of our marquee portfolio companies, and we felt bringing him on in the role of Entrepreneur-In-Residence will allow our Board, the current portfolio companies, and future portfolio companies to benefit from his expertise and feed off his considerable energy,” said Kayserian.

The EIR role will involve Schoenfeld working closely with Kayserian and Buckman, regularly meeting with the KAYWEB Angels Board and portfolio founders, seeking deals to benefit the group, and representing KAYWEB Angels at events across the United States.

“Since before KAYWEB Angels invested in Do It In Person, I believed in the vision of an investment company offering much-needed development resources to startups, in exchange for equity. But what really makes this work is that KAYWEB is much more than an investor. They serve as advisors, mentors and experts that have really helped bring my vision for a company to life,” commented Schoenfeld.

“I have had a very productive working relationship with KAYWEB Angels, and was honored and delighted to accept a formal role within the organization alongside my full-time duties as CEO of Do It In Person.”
