He’s been investing in early-stage technology companies since 2007 and has been involved in transactions valued in excess of $10bn over the course of his career.

White Star

Partnering with founders through the high and low tides of the entrepreneurial voyage is at the core of our mission. I am proud to work with people from the early days of their journey all the way to the exit.
