Alejandro Vega
They're my friends  •  Founder @Huli. Entrepreneur. Wharton grad.
Beto is awesome. I met Beto a few years ago through another Kauffman Fellow and he has been extremely helpful since day one. Anytime I need ... advice regarding fundraising, strategy, negotiations and pretty much anything startup related, he has been willing to help. What has impressed me the most is how selfless he is… Beto has always made himself available even though our startup is located in another region and he receives no direct benefit. Beto is by far one of the best advisors that we have at our startup.

Adam Corrado
We worked together  •  Senior Manager, Developer Relations, Fyber and Vice President, Partnerships, Heyzap. Dartmouth College grad.
Beyond the three qualities noted above about Adam, he is engaging, analytical and intelligent. I've known Adam for years. He worked for me ... years ago. I also provided proof of concept funding for an experimental start-up he launched. I would back Adam on any start-up he engaged with; he's top notch and learns quickly. I run a $100M fund for a family office, and I see 6 deals per week. I meet a lot of start-ups and founders, and Adam would be awesome. he is relentless. Respectfully, Beto

Ellery is, above all, a man of principles and strong ethics. He brings years of experience building teams that stay together, work well, an ... d excel. Ellery has dealt with complex situations, and is an amazing sounding board. His executive prowess is well tested. Don't expect a flashy, lime-light seeking advisor in Ellery; expect a solid, thoughtful and encouraging voice.
