My friend Maureen Klewicki is with me today. Maureen leads venture investing for Cedars-Sinai. Prior to Cedars, Maureen was five years at CrossCut and before that she was program director at Techstars Healthcare, which was a partnership with Cedars. Maureen is a super smart health tech investor so I'm really excited to get to pick her brain today.

Thanks for having me, Minnie. I'm excited to be here and chat and I don't know how super smart I am, but it's going to be a good convo.  Oh, you're a well-informed thoughtful health tech investor sitting at a large hospital system. So, uh, it will be great. Start me with your check size and areas of interest.

Yeah. So our check size could range probably from $1 to $10 million, but on average it'll be $4 million. And the fund is a $100 million dollar fund.
