No. of Angel Investments: 65
Companies funded (a sampling): Foodzie, Mixer Labs, Rapleaf, The Auteurs, TwitVid

The 40-year-old former senior manager from Google left the search giant in 2005 and started angel investing soon after through Felicis Ventures. Today, the native of Turkey is the most active Google angel and has invested in about 60 companies, including Mint.com, Aardvark, and AppJet. Senkut is also the hub of the Google alumni network in many ways, helping to organize gatherings where former Googlers gather to talk about tech trends and compare notes on prospective investments. Senkut is currently raising money for Felicis Ventures and and therefore, because of SEC regulations prohibiting public solicitation of funds, did not comment for this piece.
