Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

Why is there no secondary market for digital assets like music? Why isn’t there a way for people to resell their excess energy on a peer-to-peer platform? And why wasn’t there an easy and automatic way for me to digitally save my spare change? I’ve vigorously pondered questions like these since I was a kid, eliciting both excitement of possibilities, and frustration that solutions didn’t already exist. These questions fueled my fascination and appreciation for new technologies and startups because of their ability to change the status quo of society. This led me to dip my toes in software, hardware, and finance early on, with summer jobs at an ebook startup, a solar panel company, and an investment fund focused on new technologies and innovators. These experiences only added to my fascination, while also shedding light on the trials and tribulations that new technologies and startups face due to fiercely competitive forces, misalignment of market incentives, and constrained tools and resources. From then on I’ve focused on following my passion for identifying needs of the future and helping bring them to reality.

It is with these experiences in mind that I’m truly excited to be a part of Xinova, where we’re literally building the platform to catalyze innovation. The question of why?” is a lot more exciting when there’s an environment and tools to enable the what?” and how?” of a solution. Xinova is that environment and we are building the tools. That’s something to get excited about.
