Areas of Investment: AI/Machine Learning, Security, Productivity Tools, companies leveraging unique go-to-market strategy.
The unique part of this syndicate is most deals have been heavily vetted by a network of LPs from my fund, Array Ventures.
I have 5 exits in companies with this thesis in last 3 years to companies such as Apple, GoDaddy, McGraw Hill, Samsung, and Brocade. I have worked at top-tier VC firms, True Ventures, Samsung Early Stage Investment Fund, Lightbank, HighBAR Partners, and Chicago Ventures (formerly i2a) before I started my own investment firm, Array Ventures.
I invest in technology needed for the "New World of Work". That includes companies with deep tech that leverages a new go-to-market techniques to accelerate the enterprise sales cycle.
I am investing both as an individual and as an "Open Angels," a program created by [Bloomberg Beta](http://tiny.cc/manual), the early-stage venture fund.
Bloomberg Beta created the Open Scouts program to deepen relationships with a handful of angels they trust. They will back every deal I syndicate at a fixed ratio with my personal investment. (In my case, Bloomberg Beta invests $10 for every $1 from me.) While a portion of each allocation I bring will therefore be reserved for Bloomberg Beta, they do not intend to be direct investors in my portfolio companies and I will manage the syndicate's relationship with companies.
My networks are in universities such as Stanford, MIT, UIUC, UChicago, and Columbia, from companies such as IBM, Samsung, Cisco, Google, and Square, and from VC funds I have been part of and advice such as Bullpen Capital and Bay Angels.
You can see here what I have invested in the past. Because I also manage a venture capital fund the companies you see here have gone through serious vetting. I invest in companies I think can survive bull or bear and are truly long lasting companies that are critical to any business. Enterprise companies require a very different investor and network which is what I bring to the table from my experience as an engineer, coder, founder, and a successful investor with successful exits.
