I'm CEO of Remi, a direct-to-consumer sleep and wellness company. Before starting Remi, I was an investor at Sinai Ventures. While at Sinai, I sourced five investments: Grow Mobility (50x markup), Swiftmile (lead investor), Skyryse, Doorport (lead investor), and Esusu (lead investor). These companies have all experienced markups, but I am most proud of the relationships I have developed with the founding teams. In addition to the deals I sourced, I led diligence for nine deals, supported an additional ten deals, and was a board observer on one board. For a young investor, it's a solid start to building pattern recognition.
Sinai Ventures operates much like a young startup - everyone does a bit of everything - so in addition to sourcing and diligence, I supported the fund's operations including running our quarterly and annual LP reporting process. Joining Sinai three months after the firm was founded meant all our processes had to be built from the ground up. I developed the firm's internal process pipeline from first touch to investment, structured our investment committee deliberation, and defined how we would communicate with our portfolio.
Living on four continents before the age of 20 explains why my favorite activities are meeting new people and sharing unusual food. If you're curious about the taste of stingray, feel free to reach out on email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or LinkedIn.
