The opportunity to experience synergistic relationships with others around the world always leads to greater things when pursued. Over the past few years I have invested in several companies where we experienced just that.
Entrepreneurs may call us “angel investors” but really, the fact is
we all have a chance to touch the lives of others in a unique way. We do this by bringing value to users all throughout the value chain. By making the world a better place in the way we apply our skills, knowledge and human network – we all play a special role.
Investments that do not put profit ahead of the environment, where sustainability and profit is well balanced, became my renewed focus.
