Angel Orrantia began his career as a chip designer for Intel out of Stanford. Following Intel, he led several implantable medical device development teams for Medtronic. After finishing business school at Arizona State, he built and managed a broadband and security semiconductor solutions division team at Philips Semiconductor. He took a brief opportunity to pursue his childhood dream of attending law school. He studied law at the University of Notre Dame and then practiced as a corporate attorney and IP litigator before transitioning to Intellectual Property Litigation at Fenwick & West.


Applying his diverse engineering, business, & legal experience, Angel found his true passion and success helping startups in solving complex operational issues, addressing fundraising challenges, and leading exit preparations strategies. He founded and managed an internal incubator for Applied Materials and an open innovation accelerator for SK Telecom before launching his own venture capital and consulting firm in Silicon Valley.  Now as the president of i2i, Idea to IPO, Angel is focused on helping companies scale from ideation to exit.  


Angel’s broad network and varied experiences allow him to conceive, plan and execute novel business models across multiple technology-focused industries. Currently, he is guiding European companies and local startups to develop and implement their expansion plans in Silicon Valley, focusing on customer acquisition and strategic fundraising programs.


A New Mexico native, he grew up riding bulls and broncs in the rodeo. His volunteer work helped establish the Bureau of Land Management’s mustang gentling program at the super-max prison near Santa Fe, NM. His passion for all things rideable and dangerous led him to join the men’s polo team at Stanford and commute on a motorcycle in the Bay Area, much to his wife’s chagrin.
