My goal is to live a long, healthy and happy life and to find an affordable way for everyone else to do the same. We are truly living in revolutionary times for healthcare thanks to the advent of digital health technologies. Digital technology can help provide cheaper, faster and more effective solutions for disease prevention, detection and management; transform unsustainable healthcare systems into sustainable ones and equalise the relationship between medical professionals and patients.
I am a board member and active investor in a variety of start-ups, mostly in online services, healthcare, fintech, logistics, energy and travel.
