We focus on companies with strong long-term competitive advantages (network effects, proprietary data, economies of scale, etc). Mostly b2b.
We're open to any company with good moat potential. We do a lot of b2b investing. On the b2c side, we typically look for companies that monetize users directly rather than through ads.
