Key Accomplishments

A serial entrepreneur that has launched and helped define multiple start-ups in the valley. The bootstrapped The Imagination Group (boutique consulting group) which was acquired by a spin-off from Apple Computer called Rae Technology (First PIM to market, creator of first enterprise Newton application, 24 Hours in Cyberspace). Rae was ultimately absorbed into NetObjects that went public (NETO) before the bubble burst (one of the first website building applications called NetObjects Fusion). She then went on to help her mentor launch The Womens Leadership Institute (8 day course to work with executive women leaders break through the glass ceiling). Most recently, she is a co-founder of venture-backed Mode Media (Glam Media) built on the vision that social curation would help people find content, products & videos. Mode grew from 10 employees to the #1 Lifestyle Media company and the 6th largest US Media company in reach with 144 Million US & 400 Million global users a month and annual revenues of $100 Million during her time there.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I believe that a well rounded group of people that compliment each other and have minimal overlap is key to a successful co-founding team.

As an Advisor

As an adviser i enjoy diving into all aspects of the business and working with the founding team to breakthrough any barriers that may be slowing them down.
