Vouch for them.

Mark Lieberman
We worked together  •  Advisory Council Member, Oregon State University Venture Development Fund.
I worked with Ken during my membership with the Pasadena Angels. Ken was our "go to" expert on all things SAAS, web and app based. Ken is mu ... ch more than a software expert, but also well versed in new venture strategy, product development and increasing value for early stage firms.
Sharon Bailey Beckett
We worked together  •  Associate, Pasadena Angels and Managing Partner, Beckett Advisors, Inc..
Ken is highly analytical and leaves no stone unturned. His breadth of knowledge from product development to operations is impressive. Fina ... lly, he knows how to get along and inspire teams to work.
Richard Chino
Advisor, InSequent, Inc. and Advisor, DAQRI. Kellogg grad.
Ken has good insights to provide and he takes seriously his role as an advisor.
David Wiens
We worked together  •  Director, ShopperTrak Labs. Previously Director of Sales and Application Development, H2scan Corporation.
I worked with Ken for a period of 1.5 years, supporting him through numerous early stage investment evaluation cycles. Ken was always willi ... ng to take the lead on due diligence and coach entrepreneurs through the screening process. Even when he decided not to invest, he showed a continued interest in helping the entrepreneurs improve. He is extremely bright, easy to communicate with and has a wealth of knowledge from his own entrepreneurial successes. Ken is definitely someone I would want in my corner if I were running a company.

Sharon Bailey Beckett
We worked together  •  Associate, Pasadena Angels and Managing Partner, Beckett Advisors, Inc..
Sharon brings leadership, organization and structure to complex, political initiatives. She has been excellent at running major Board-level ... initiatives in the Pasadena Angels and 'herding the cats' - keeping everyone focused and on target to complete challenging projects requiring lots of research and analysis.

David Wiens
Director, ShopperTrak Labs. Previously Director of Sales and Application Development, H2scan Corporation.
I worked with Dave for over a year as an investor when he was the Investment Screening Manager at Pasadena Angels. He dealt with over 100 en ... trepreneurs, as well as our 100 investor members. This gave him great insight into the startup funding process and what it takes for entrepreneurs to succeed and get funded. He's particularly adept at handling complex technical issues while very business-minded, and he's a pleasure to work with.
