Note from Human Augmentation

I have backed some of the most successful companies in Silicon Valley. Over half a dozen of my investments generated returns in excess of 50X, and the majority have generated positive returns. My past investments include Kana, LinkExchange, NexTag, AdMob, SlideShare, Brightroll, Mashery, Digital Impact, Flixster and StumbleUpon. My current investments include Strava, Freedom Financial, Optimizely, LendingHome and Thumbtack.

I am now focusing on the nascent space of human augmentation. This syndicate is for those who share my belief that, during the next decade, technology will dramatically enhance our human capabilities.

I will syndicate all my human augmentation deals - unless the company prevents me from doing so.
