Chris invests across all sectors and verticals but is particularly interested in businesses building software products that solve pain points within old-line industries. Prior to Inspired, Chris spent four years as an investor at First Round, a seed stage venture fund based in New York and San Francisco, where he sourced new investments and helped found Angel Track, a platform and community for emerging angel investors across the country. Before becoming a venture investor, Chris started his career at The Blackstone Group and was an active angel investor in New York.
