Primarily a consumer and marketplace investor, Nabeel seeks out entrepreneurs who develop that rare combination of design and technology to transform markets. He looks for products in which the underlying technology can be complex, but are presented as a simple, magical experience to the people who use them. This is more about characteristics of the company & founders than markets, so I spend time in everything from robotics to social media to hospitality to on demand economy.
Not Interested In
Not interested in non-product experiences, so deep enterprise software where the end consumer is not the buyer is likely not a fit.
