B2B SaaS with domain expert founders, as well as big idea/transformational consumer businesses. Founders must be both visionary and execution oriented. Must be well versed on how to appropriately fund their business (without overfunding), maintain quality capital throughout and attract an exit.
Also, really like MLM based businesses, but rarely see them.
Not Interested In
Pre-revenue businesses unless the founders have incredible domain expertise. No interest in unproven consumer apps unless it is VR/AR and has a clear roadmap.
I'm really interested in the intersection between nonprofits and startups: the companies that have been rejected from other angels or VCs for not being "investment ready" meaning no product, no prototype, or merely having intentions. I made the same mistake myself a few years ago, starting a company that was better off as a nonprofit. My job therefore is to convince clients that tax exemption has a host of advantages that often (not always) make it a better option than the angel/VC route.
