About Basil Darwish
Experienced technology venture investor with hands-on experiences across several geographies. Used to do advanced technology product development earlier in my career before switching to venture capital.
Over a decade of experience in venture investing across Silicon Valley, New York/London Fintech ecosystem, and Southeast Asia/Singapore. Top quartile VC returns profile. Particular focus on Enterprise B2B Tech (Cyber Security, Big Data Analytics, AI/ML, and Cloud/Infrastructure technologies), Fintech and Regtech. Track record in leading and structuring funding rounds for early-to-growth stage startups, coupled with active portfolio management via board participation. I am also experienced in driving corporate innovation and incubator functions governed by disciplined stage-gate models from conceptualization and prototyping, to handing over to business units for deployment.
Earlier in my career, I spent years in the technology industry in various roles across the value chain, from semiconductor chip design to product engineering and system-level integration, at both a Fortune500 and a deep tech startup.
