Think Mark is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Sarina Behar Natkin
They're my school  •  Co-Owner, Parent Education & Consulting, GROW Parenting. University of Washington grad. University of Oregon grad.
Mark is a visionary. He sees what people need before they know they need it, and creates a stellar team to bring that vision to reality. He ... is a natural coach and leader.
Paul Mammen
They're my friends  •  Owner, Summit Marketing Group. University of Washington grad.
He's full of energy and charisma and great ideas.
Jason Hilbourne
We worked together  •  Senior Mechanical Engineer, Trimble Navigation. University of California, Santa Barbara grad.
Well, this is a trick question, right? Mark is already a great entrepreneur. Plus--he's not afraid to shamelessly promote his stuff on Faceb ... ook. So, if "shameless" and "promoter" are synonyms for "great" and "entrepreneur," then we're done here.
Zachary Fruchtengarten
They're my friends  •  Shareholder, Gevurtz, Menashe, Larson & Howe, P.C.. University of Oregon grad.
Mark refuses to follow the status quo. He is always looking for better ways to do things and opportunities which line up with his passions ... in life.
Daniel Paul
Managing Director, Boulder, Pyxl. Previously EVP, Engagement, IMM - Right Ideas. Real Results. All In.. University of Colorado Boulder grad.
Mark is a very intelligent and patient advisor who is whip smart. He is caring and knows the ups and downs of the business world.
adam nemer
We worked together  •  Executive Director, Membership and Benefits Administration, Regulatory Svcs and Issues Management, Kaiser Permanente.
Mark understands the risks of entrepreneurship and has consistently modeled the characteristics of a successful start up founder.
Michael Natkin
They're my friends  •  Chief Technical Officer, ChefSteps.com. Brown grad.
I've been informally advising Mark as he gets TipTap up and running, especially with regard to getting the software built. I've been impress ... ed with how committed he is to this project and how he's able to rapidly take technical advice on board and act on it.
