I founded Musha Ventures over a decade ago to invest in startups across the world, and started my investing career at Index Ventures (as an MBA intern). I’ve now made ~100 investments in ~20 countries, and continue to invest actively all around the world.
As part of this, I run Musha Ventures Africa, with external investors, through a Rolling Fund in case you’d like to learn more and get exposure to early stage technology companies in Africa.
I also often invest together with Sequoia Capital (as a Scout) and with Village Global (as a Network Leader) when I personally invest in a company as well as a network of close friends and co-investors.
I invest in areas that I understand such as crypto, future of work, emerging markets and amazing people.
