Questions & Answers

Origin Story: In a couple sentences, how would you describe your path to becoming an investor?

I spent most of my career as an institutional VC, most recently at Citi Ventures in NY. I started Dash to support founders as both an operator and investor.

Investment Approach: What are the key factors you consider when evaluating a founding team?

DNA: What's the team's functional and domain expertise and how does it map to what they're trying to build / the market they're going after?

What's your style and approach when it comes to working with founders post-investment? What are the characteristics of founders you've worked well with?

I try to support founders based on my experience in FinTech + SaaS (domain expertise) and GTM + Finance / Fundraising (functional expertise). Founders I've worked well with play in a category that I know well.

If I'm coming to pitch to you, what's the one piece of advice you'd give me?
