About

I’m an early-stage investor at Two Sigma Ventures, where I have the privilege of supporting mission-driven founders in their quest to build the next great software companies.

I started this blog to share some ideas that inspire me, and in doing so, hopefully inspire others. Some of the ideas I’ve been exploring lately relate to:

  • technology + social justice
  • climate tech
  • b2b marketplaces + payments
  • open source software
  • machine learning/data/cloud-native infrastructure.

Feel free to reach out with any questions or comments. I hope you enjoy my musings.

One of my coolest new features of @jemi_hq: the ability to build a custom website in <20min and share the template with the world. UGC templatization is the future of SaaS and a clear way companies can build moats over time (e.g. Notion).
