I work with startups across the enterprise stack. I am particularly excited about how machine learning and deep learning are reinventing existing software categories and creating new consumer experiences. I have invested in companies in AI-enabled business applications (such as Marketing Technology and HR Technology), Data Platforms, Data Center Infrastructure, Online Video, and Cyber Security.
I rarely invest in consumer, and have never invested in healthcare start-ups
