Manish Patel

Manish’s passion for building began when he was a kid. Whether it was on his brother’s Commodore 128 or with a bucket of Legos, he loved to create experiences that stretched the imagination. Today, that same excitement drives his involvement in the startup community. Manish helps teams realize their potential as they evolve from an insight, to an experience, to a business.

At Highland, Manish works with students of human behavior. He invests in Consumer Internet, Mobile and Digital Media companies that observe patterns in our everyday lives and use technology to solve problems at a human scale. Manish is responsible for Highland’s investment in Aviate, Disconnect, Leap Motion and Syntellia, among others. He is active on the boards of Game Closure, Impermium and Leap Motion.
