She was also first check in SideQuestVR, Loc.tax and cerbos.dev, amongst others.

Carmen looks for Killers with a Heart and likes to invest in businesses with insane customer love – she looks for businesses solving a very painful pain, supported by super engaged communities, where members have almost an emotional connection with the product/experience and a strong sense of belonging. B2B and B2C companies that are almost cults for their users are highly scalable and defensible.
