How investment + inclusion leads to more innovation and Impact 

Growing Innovation and investment in digital wellness and behavioral health

Youth mental health and wellness from an innovation & investment standpoint

Leadership development in the Asian community

Creating and supporting diversity and inclusion environments

My professional experience has taught me that you cannot focus on just one aspect of a company — such as a charismatic founder or a shiny new technology — and should look at a startup holistically. Ask yourself some simple questions like: Is the problem this company is solving considered significant? Is the solution that it is offering differentiated and scalable? Does the team have the right capabilities and capacity to execute on its idea?
