Prior Investments

I come from a family of immigrants who own small businesses: hair salons, restaurants, auto repair shops, furniture retailers, and local dentistry practices. Growing up, I saw firsthand how even the most minor technological upgrades brought so much to their businesses, which made me appreciate how technology can play a real role in achieving the American dream. As an investor, I am proud to support entrepreneurs who use technology to empower individuals, much like those in my family, to pursue their aspirations.

During my time in private equity and investment banking, I got to work with incredible CEOs. The most impressive ones could drive growth and profitability at the same time. This is a very difficult balance, and you can’t strike it without visibility across all parts of your business. My goal is to give founders leverage in aligning KPIs, delegating responsibilities, and getting transparent updates on how metrics are trending. This can feel easy to deprioritize, especially for founders who are more product- or GTM-oriented, but I’ve seen firsthand how it is critical to building an enduring business.

On fintech

Fintech companies are built on trust. Customers need to feel that their money and data are secure. Regulators insist on transparency and reliability. The best fintechs can build great products while also prioritizing transparency, communication, and operating practices that always preserve trust.

I'm keeping a close eye on embedded financial services because they remove barriers to economic participation for underserved populations. The best products integrate financial tools into everyday activities. This helps individuals and small businesses access banking, payments, and investment services. I love how this approach democratizes finance, increases inclusivity, and empowers underserved populations to take charge of their money.
