Investing in the Future of the Automotive Industry
After building a portfolio of startups over the past two decades, David continues to invest in and create partnerships with companies that are also in the automotive industry. “I tend to invest in an industry that I know a lot about,” says David. As a member of the board for these other companies, David provides advice, investment, and sometimes capital.
Investing in the Right People
Investing in People, Not Just Products
For David, it’s not just about the product and whether it will succeed ─ it’s also about the people who run the organization and whether they have what it takes to win. Products can change, and disruption can happen in this industry; this is why David chooses to invest in the right people. “When you hire people you like, the culture builds upon itself,” says David.
