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.
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.
