We’ve invested and continue to be very active in consumer internet and mobile companies in a variety of industries (see portfolio page for a detailed list). Going forward, we will make big bets on mobile and e-commerce companies, as well as pursue mobile and internet applications in healthcare, energy, personalized medicine and education.
We invest in exceptional technical teams, first and foremost. We like to see great product fit for the target user besides compelling design. We feel that a fiercely loyal user base will attract the right business models over time. We get excited about companies that have a positive impact in our lives. It doesn’t take much to build a site/app these days so we have an overwhelming bias towards teams that have something up and running to demonstrate their ideas.
