I am most interested in solving business problems and building big companies in the process. That includes enterprise software and cloud and all the underlying technologies. I am naturally more attracted to companies with a technical breakthrough and love to scale companies.
I am mostly not interested in anything B2C unless there is a business that benefits from the consumer using the product and paying for it. I am skeptical about cleantech and fintech but can sometimes be convinced if there is a clear business angle.
