Lawrence Lundy-Bryan

I'm a technology researcher and investor. As a research partner with Lunar Ventures, a deep tech fund, I try to figure out which technologies and markets we should invest in. Previously, I led the development of the Outlier Ventures investment strategy focused on the intersection of blockchains with the Internet of Things and AI. My background was as a technology analyst covering emerging technologies. Today I am most interested in:

  • data infrastructure like data unions and data markets
  • privacy-enhancing technology like homomorphic encryption and multi-party computation
  • hardware, software and algorithms for efficient computing like FPFAs/ASICs and photonics
