Getting to know you.

Being an early stage investor, the team is incredibly important and in some cases the single most critical part. I will therefore spend quite some time getting to know you and the team, perhaps more than what seems sensible. I want to hear about your weekend, then we’ll get to business. 

I’m a huge people person.

I’m by nature very curious, so I’m motivated by learning about people, a new industry or a new way of doing things (at times also hugely motivated by a glass of red lingering at the end of a long day)
