Michael Hoffman
We worked together at Concert Technology, Inc  •  Obsessed with incubating innovative solutions at two startups: Object Theory & Pijaz. Prior: Microsoft HoloLens, Google/YouTube & Nike.
First and foremost, Steve is simply an amazing person. He is intelligent, accomplished, thoughtful, energetic, trustworthy and genuine. He ... is one of those rare people who simply knows how to parse any situation into its essential parts and act on it with confidence. Steve has a tremendous grasp of technology in the context of the big picture, knows how to build and lead sizeable teams, yet can code anything you throw his way when the situation demands getting your hands dirty. He is also a prolific inventor, with over 50 patents in the queue, and an expert in understanding the intellectual property landscape. He's the perfect person to help define and build a software or software/hardware platform from both a strategic and tactical perspective. Finally, he has the maturity and experience to remain relevant beyond the early years of a startup.
