How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'm a serial entrepreneur and venture investor. I've experienced the entire startup lifecycle (conceptualize, launch, iterate, scale and exit). This experience has taught me that building a successful startup is a team sport. As a result, team to me is everything. Join us in transforming the fundraising process.
