I have a few core theses about the world that shape my philosophy as an early-stage investor. They help me to guide why I invest along with what and who I invest in.

Why: I believe technology and capital are the most powerful tools for social progress – but we need the social/public sectors to push us forward equitably.

What: I believe data is the most valuable commodity in the world and will fuel the machine intelligence-enabled 4th industrial revolution.

Who: I believe talent is universal, opportunity is not – I strive to cultivate diversity/inclusion in the start up ecosystem and to seek out the true hustlers, irrespective of background.
