Tech Investor in +25 startups, but Founder and Entrepreneur at heart.
Exits to Oculus VR / Facebook & Snap Inc.
My passion is the journey of a technology startup, transforming initial ideas to great products. I prefer to engage and invest in early stage technology startups, who are committed to swing for the fences. I want to help startups succeed with their mission to put a dent in the universe.
My most exciting journeys was transforming PhD research on eye tracking into The Eye Tribe, a startup developing the world's leading eye tracking technology for the next generation computing platforms of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. The Eye Tribe was acquired by Facebook in Dec 2016 with the aim of integrating eye tracking technology into future Oculus VR/AR products. Since then I have been active in the startup community as an investor and advisor, where I recently served as a hands-on team member at NextMind transforming research on brain-computer interfaces into a non-invasive brain sensor. I worked closely with the founder to fund and commercialize the tech and we successfully exited to Snap Inc. in March 2022.
