Most excited about vertical saas companies with some applied data / ML component and an opportunity to integrate financial services / payments at scale. Particular verticals of interest include real estate / property, logistics, heavy industry. Always excited about anything in security / infrastructure.
Generally less excited about horizontal SaaS companies, though there are always exceptions to any rule :)
