What I do?

I invest in founders building mission critical products for business users, with a maniacal focus on building structural moats around their businesses over time.  

What I look for?

Ambitious and hungry product founders targeting large markets. I believe hunger and ambition are more important ingredients of success than experience. Some of my thoughts on investing are here and here.

Thesis areas I'm interested in currently:

Vertical marketplaces and communities, B2B applications of Blockchain, Tools for the freelancer economy. 

Outside of work, my life revolves around my wife, Kunjan Chabra, the interior designer and blogger behind An Affair With Color
