I believe that targeted information, at the right time in the right context, plays a crucial role in managing any business. When I research an emerging technology trend, discover a promising start-up, or analyze our deal flow I am contributing to the firm’s knowledge-base. I strive to be a resource for connecting colleagues to intelligence which assists their decisions.
