I’ve had the opportunity to work with Hunter as a consultant for some of Homebrew’s investments, and have seen first-hand the value he d ... elivers to his portfolio companies. Hunter has a wealth of experience, a thoughtful point of view, and is generous about offering his input. He’s always willing to provide feedback or be a sounding board for ideas, and has great insights on product, operations, and marketing. He brings a perspective that’s broad in vision but also practical and on point.
