Adam is a general partner at GV, where he brings expertise in machine learning (ML) and data technologies. He seeks out entrepreneurs in several areas, including high value applications of ML and data, and in the new ecosystem enabled by the ride-sharing and delivery networks worldwide. The scale of these new networks has created new opportunities and made some previously uneconomical opportunities possible.
