In Sik has spent the past 20 years as an accomplished entrepreneur, advisor, and investor across a broad spectrum of technology-enabled markets. His love of technology started at the age of 12 when he bought his first computer and taught himself to code using computer magazines from the local library. He discovered the online world in 1986 when he bought his first 300 baud modem, and has participated in the global internet transformation phenomena from the very beginning.
In Sik’s career contributions have centered around platform enablement, and he focuses his investments primarily on early stage companies building software and data management products/services targeting enterprise markets.
