Most Interested In
I invest across a broad range of companies via sourcing/vetting for Freestyle Capital as well as via my own angel and advisor investments. At the moment I have a particular interest in digital health, including digital therapeutics, ML/AI in healthcare, etc. I also have an interest in developer tools and enterprise SaaS companies leveraging deep learning for accelerated productivity.
Not Interested In
I'm not presently interested in companies that are primarily services based rather than software based.
