Amanda West
We worked together  •  Marketing Intern, Niman Ranch. Stanford GSB grad. Stanford grad.
Mike is a successful entrepreneur and one of the people I most enjoy working with. He is a humble leader who knows how to recruit and guide ... the best people for the job. From the day I first met Mike in grad school, I made every effort to work with him on both his and my entrepreneurial endeavors. I can't speak highly enough of Mike as a business partner and friend. I'm just envious of the person who gets to work on his next venture. Mike will bring financial rigor, strategic thinking, client service, years of entrepreneurial and operational expertise, collaboration, and a great sense of humor to any company or business idea.
Payam Banazadeh
We worked together  •  Co-Founder & CEO, Capella Space. Stanford grad. The University of Texas at Austin grad.
I worked with Mike in the early phases of my company, Capella Space. Mike has a great business mind, is extremely motivated, and has a knack ... for getting to the driving points really quickly. He is also great to work with and spend time which is really important to entrepreneurs who spend a lot of their time talking to people and working late hours.
