VC Screening Process

As a venture capital investment manager, opportunities land on my desk all the time, time is precious, I cannot be “All to Everyone”, and more importantly, if I choose to invest my time and resources into an opportunity with mediocre returns, I will forego other, more lucrative opportunities, something we term as “opportunity cost”.

Public ProfileMy DNA is that of an entrepreneur. But as someone who has spent his career in as a director in a family-owned business corporate, I define that term more broadly than most. My brand of entrepreneurship means that I see opportunity where others see a void, I see solutions rather than problems, and no matter how hard it gets I persevere, learning and adapting quickly from mistakes along the way. I am excited by and passionate about opportunities to lead businesses to the next level of success, infusing the teams I lead with energy and focus, and helping them to navigate strategic challenges and to chart new paths to growth.
