How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am highly collaborative and like working in an environment (whether physically or virtual_ where there is a free flow of idea and suggestions, but a bias towards action. I am a firm believer in the "fail fast" approach to product and technology, as I have learned that no idea survives the first contact with a customer. I have a strong work ethic and expect the same of others, particularly in terms of deadlines and deliverables. However, I have started over a dozen companies and know how fluid start-ups can be.

As an Advisor

Highly engaged and like to dig in to strategy but understand that while ideas spark life, accomplishments nourish ideas, and cash is like oxygen, without you die quickly. Since if have founded 10 companies, I usually have seen something like your problem before and can help find a good solution.
