Mo invests in companies that efficiently and beautifully reimagine the world’s largest, most influential industries—finance, real estate, employment, retail, food, transportation. He is drawn to entrepreneurs who have the unique ability to design elegant solutions to complex problems.
Some common threads run through the entrepreneurs and businesses that Mo supports: intellectual honesty, brand authenticity, the marriage of art and science, and the tenet that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.
Mo led Spark’s investments in Bond Street, DIY, Goji, FundersClub, Kitchensurfing, Plaid, Sift Science, Skillshare, Splash, Storefront, Warby Parker, and Work Market. He served as a director of Signpost. His previous investments include Aviary (acquired by Adobe), GDGT (acquired by AOL) and Svpply (acquired by eBay).

He began his career as an investment banker at Bear Stearns.
A quintessential New Yorker, Mo calls it like he sees it, is attuned to culture and design trends, and is an active member of the creative community.
