I run global expansion products at Uber. Before that, I started Google Shopping Express.
I'm a 15+ year entrepreneur in the Bay Area, with my fair share of success and failure. My biggest company (Mercantila) was acquired by Google, and at Google I founded Google Trusted Stores and Google Shopping Express. In 2014, I joined Uber to run several of their start-up projects.
With this background, many entrepreneurs come to me and I see a lot of deal flow, and I work closely with many early-stage start-ups, especially in the logistics, finance, healthcare, and e-commerce spaces. My deal flow comes from these mentor/advisor relationships, and it includes both very early-stage deals and follow-on rounds from prior investments. For obvious reasons, I don't do anything that would conflict with Google Shopping Express, but there's a lot of complementary companies/spaces where I get very early exposure.
Many of my deals have limited allocation, so in cases where my Syndicate > Allocation, I will syndicate those privately to my Syndicate. So if you'd like to see these deals, I encourage you to join the Syndicate. However, the trade off is that I have absolutely **no problems** if you opt out of any deals that don't make sense for you, no questions asked, no score kept. I appreciate other Syndicates that take this approach.
Free free to message me with any questions.
I will syndicate all deals where I get sufficient allocation.
