Our General Partners

Hi, I am a founder turned investor.

 

"As a previous founder, my venture exposure is in the earliest stages of the startup lifecycle. So it was a natural progression to start supporting founders and becoming an early-stage investor."

 

One of my lifelong hobbies is Texas Hold 'em Poker:

I've found that Texas Hold 'em and investing in new ventures overlap in many wayFor examples, in In Poker, GTO & Exploitative Play is similar to Data-driven decisions paired with Founder Assessment...add that with constantly having to take calculated risks, and you'll have venture investing.

I am passionate about:

Investing in the future, Poker, and leaving a positive impact.

Hi, I am an angel investor, founder and I am passionate about all things fintech.  

 

While I initially started my career in banking in New York, I eventually parlayed my experience to found a robo-advisor startup based in China which simplified the investment process for retail investors through automated, curated investment portfolios. 

 

I have also been part of the Growth and Product teams of WeLab, a leading fintech in Asia, where I helped to build one of the first neobanks in Hong Kong and managed the fundraising of hundreds of millions of dollars in capital. 

 

I am passionate about: 

Challenging the status quo, disruptive tech, building seamless products, and bots.
