We're proudly Generalist investors, but have a few things we're especially keen on (for now, anyway): All things FinTech (Investments, Insurance, Payments, Banking) General Health and Wellness (addiction and mental health, fitness, diet and gut health) Slow(er) moving industries who are coming to terms with the efficiencies of technology (broadly, Real Estate, Law, Insurance, Banking) "Dev Tools" for non-developers/No-Code solutions Consumerization of EdTech (bottoms-up sales process)
Consumer Goods, Med Device, Pharma, Food, CleanTech, and some Hardware (IOT sometimes, Chips/Semis never)
