I'm looking to invest in founders who execute with speed. Two areas that I'm looking at most right now include 1) Digital consumer health and 2) Decentralized software / Blockchain companies
Not Interested In
These are areas I do not invest in:
-Consumer apps that monetize through ads (i.e. lots of eyeballs / users)
-Games / gaming
-Energy devices (different from software)
-E-commerce (may selectively do 1-3 in this portfolio)
-Companies incorporated outside of US / CAN
