We worked together  •  Co-Founder at PlanAlchemy
Amer has been an advisor for company I cofounded (Lumity) for over 2 years. Amer is one of the most helpful advisors I have had the pleasur ... e of working with. He guided us in getting the right hires, made so many introductions, served as a reference for fund raising and customers. We are very grateful to have him as an advisor and investor in Lumity.

Amer is the consummate GM/CEO with international experience. He's polished yet dynamic with a roll up your sleeves practicality to explore n ... ew ventures or run more established businesses. I've had the pleasure of knowing Amer since 2000 on the first big Internet runup. He's thoughtful and works with integrity - a quality rarely found in the Valley.

Steven Atneosen
We worked together  •  Managing Director. Growth Operator & Advisor., Grand Chasm Ventures. Previously SVP, Corporate Development & General Counsel, StayWell.
Steven is already an entrepreneur - he is very driven and a great networker. He understands trends and is looking for the right partners an ... d advisors to help create a successful company. I trust Steven and his ability to get things done. We worked together at a startup many yearsa go and have stayed in touch on numerous other opportunities. He will selflessly make introductions and took a big risk in moving from the LA area to SF to make his entrepreneurial dreams come true. His current venture helps investors rapidly grow their portfolio companies and he is very interested in health care business models.
