Most Interested In
I am interested in companies that are keenly focused on bringing their solution to the global marketplace versus focusing on regional opportunities. The second criteria is a B2B market. Typically, I invest in B2B deep tech startups that create unique technology and quickly respond to market signals and pivot if necessary.
Not Interested In
I do not currently engage in synthetic biotech and quantum computing. I certainly feel these two areas are up-and-coming and reserve the right to pivot should opportunities present. Still, at the current time, they are not in focus. Likewise, I do not deal at the moment with any cryptocurrency projects.
