Philosophically Michael believes that a balance of business building, corporate development and investment expertise is crucial to deliver sustainable alpha to LP investors in the most de-risked manner possible. The challenge when investing in venture, as an asset class, is to be systematic about how you screen opportunities at scale and then select the most likely winners with minimum bias.
