What’s the most rewarding aspect of the job you do?
The most rewarding aspect for my job is simply the opportunity to meet founders and getting to hear about amazing ideas every day. The opportunity of helping our companies from the ground up, of having a sense of belonging with each and every company that we invest in, and of seeing innovative ideas grow into successful companies excites me a lot.
What’s the most challenging aspect of the job you do?
Finding the right companies at the right time. There is always a high risk of uncertainty in early stage investing which makes it difficult to precisely estimate value or form the right expectations regarding future performance with 100% accuracy. So, it’s become important to back cold-hearted market analysis with your warm-hearted conviction in the idea and founders.
What qualities do you most admire in other people?
Passion, integrity and perseverance
