Justin Soffer
We worked together  •  VP Marketing at Travelzoo, Advisor/Investor, Tsai Capital Corporation
When I worked with Justin, he was my client at Travelzoo. His open-mindedness to new ideas in a company that wasn't always as receptive was ... a breath of fresh air and really allowed us to do our job. I enjoyed working with him and have continued to be in touch as I respect his insights into the startup world and look forward to working with him again.

Christopher Fahey
They're my friends  •  SVP Product and User Experience, Big Spaceship. Previously ZocDoc, Behavior Design.
