What inspires you about venture capital?

Meeting intelligent founders who have made it their mission to solve compelling, difficult and important problems

Which investment categories excite you most and why?

I’m most excited about the application of AI in healthcare. Global demand for healthcare is growing, driven by aging populations, changing patient expectations and shifts in lifestyle patterns. At the same time, healthcare systems are struggling as patient needs become more complex and the supply of healthcare professionals remains short. AI and its related technologies are well suited to solve some of these problems. In particular, I think personalized, predictive and precision healthcare will help to improve patient outcomes, the efficiency of care delivery, and the overall sustainability of healthcare systems.

Podcast or publication?

Podcast, specifically The Knowledge Project by Shane Parrish. The topics are both wide and deep, and the interviews are always thoughtful and delivered with ease.

It’s a Saturday afternoon, where can we find you and what are you up to?

Having brunch with friends after a morning workout, or in the Singapore Botanic Gardens walking my dog and listening to the abovementioned podcast!
