Think George is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Drew Austin
We worked together  •  COO at Augmate. Interests in wearable technology, digital eyewear, natural user interface, and enterprise software.
George has the unique ability to combine technical skills, design ability, and business strategy to offer valuable resources to a startup bu ... siness. His philosophical approach to business problems leads to creative solutions. He doesn't only offer ideas, he implements.

Dave Eisenberg
Founder/CEO, Floored and Entrepreneur-In-Residence, Accel Partners. Harvard grad.
Dave is a visionary.

Drew Austin
COO at Augmate. Interests in wearable technology, digital eyewear, natural user interface, and enterprise software.
Drew is driven. The man has tunnel vision in the best way possible -- focused on execution. He is fantastic to work with if you want to know ... what it takes to be laser focused and incredibly agile. He has my highest recommendation.

Michael Leach
We worked together  •  Founder, BoardLab. Previously Associate Designer, Mark Foster Gage Architects. North Carolina State grad.
Mike would be a great entrepreneur because he throws himself into what he is passionate about. The guy has skills. His background in digital ... design (fabrication, construction techniques, 3D modeling and visualization) makes him incredibly flexible, able to conceptualize and prototype his ideas with ease. As an entrepreneur its important to be able to quickly get your ideas in front of others and be open to feedback. Mike is also very analytical. He has a background in engineering along with architecture so he can look at a problem at multiple scales at once. From the details to the big picture -- an entrepreneur should be able to wrap his/her head around any issue.

Adrian von der Osten
We worked together  •  Product Manager, Business Development & Operations, W;nk and Adjunct Instructor, Florida International University.
Adrian, as a co-founder, is someone you want in your corner. He is thoughtful and diligent. The guy gets things done while being someone who ... can draw inspiration from a wide-range of topics. While we were building Feather and Mint, Adrian was a voice of insight, suggesting strategic initiatives that he would execute. He is a rare mix -- analytical and highly empathetic. His ability to synthesize his interests into insightful and creative solutions to problems is a hallmark of his ability to be an entrepreneur. Personally, I'm proud to vouch for him because we've worked together on a number of projects and anyone would be lucky as I have been to have him as a cofounder.
