As a result, he was always on the lookout for ways to succeed outside of school. In turn, it is exactly this kind of differentiation and drive that he looks for in Founders as an investor today. Most recently, Michael has co-founded Cocoon Capital, an early stage fund, which is looking to invest in companies throughout Southeast Asia.
