Sabbatical — 2018: More To Share Later

  • Too bad I missed three YC batches: YC W18, YC S18 and YC W19.
  • I may write a separate blog one day to tell my story about that year, which ended up fueling my drive to be dedicated to startup investing full time.

Vintage — 2019: Restart with More Fuel

  • Fully dedicated to VC: again started looking outside of Y Combinator.
  • Made 12 seed investments (66% from YC) within three months.
  • Wrote 6 personal checks including both seeds and pro-rata’s.
  • Started using Twitter actively since July 2019 to have a voice and show how I work in the public.
  • Inbound deal-flow got stronger with very authentic branding.
