Angel Investments

Started dabbling in small angel investments since 2021 in the AI and FinTech space. I have a simple approach - I invest in companies with incredible products that I would be proud of building myself as an engineer. This is still a very nascent part of what I do as I love being fully operational in solving problems and building companies which I spend 99% of my time on at the moment.
