You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Machine learning • Artificial intelligence • Hadoop • Information Retrieval • Natural language processing

Key Accomplishments

I've helped raise over one hundred millions of dollars across two instances. I'm a C-level executive with a broad background in technology, product mgt, and revenue operations. I care about building companies by creating value to the end user.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I expect my co-founders to be smarter than me in at least one way so I can rely on them. Recruiting is a key task in any startup and you'll need to have the attitude to attract great talent and sell them on the concept. If my co-founder is more suitable to be CEO than me, then I'm happy that they take on that role.

To get past the inevitable challenges this startup will face, I am looking for 1 or 2 people who are smarter than me who can strategize and execute alongside me.

As an Advisor

I'll bring my expertise to bear in exchange for equity. You'll have limited access to me, but also to my network of people.
