I primarily invest in Seed and Series A startups based in the US or Canada that are disrupting the areas of our economy with the largest contribution to GDP. This includes fintech, insuretech, and proptech (20% GDP), professional services and enterprise workflow technology (13% GDP), and digital health technologies (8% GDP). Other peripheral interests include consumer products, e-commerce, information technology and transportation (collectively 20% GDP).
I am less interested in technology around traditional energy extraction and distribution, government services, educational services, utilities, and construction.
