Bilal is an awesome guy. Great to work with, smart, insightful, and helpful. Not just a never-done-it MBA who thinks they know your business better than you. You would be lucky to have Bilal involved with your company.
I am an early-stage VC in techn. Partner at Lux Capital, currently investing out of our 3rd fund ($245m) in technology, energy and healthcare sectors. Previously I was an investor at General Catalyst Partners and an entrepreneur. Spent 15 years in Boston and now in Palo Alto.
Describe what you have done, what you are doing, and the kinds of things you are interested in.
I invest in founders and startups trying to solve important problems, from consumer/lifestyle companies to robotics, computational imaging, big data analytics, energy and healthcare IT.
Not a momentum investor, but want to bet on big ideas that when they win, win big. I prefer technical teams that have depth of understanding of the space, and businesses that can truly differentiate themselves in the marketplace over the long term.
I have been fortunate to support several first-time entrepreneurs. I also co-founded RoughDraft.vc and StartLabs.org to support young technical founders.
Brilliant entrepreneurs who think creatively about solving important problems, and recruit strong teams that execute on their vision. I invest across technology, energy & healthcare sectors. Fund investments range from $100k to $10m. Personal investments may be smaller.
