How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

As the "Swiss Army Knife" and "Master of Everything Else" who can take on any task, big or small, that's necessary to build the company. Specifically, bring my cross-functional and cross-industry perspective and multiple functional skills (Strategy, Fundraising, Finance, Legal, Corporate Development, and G&A operations) to the table to allow the founders to focus on product development and customer acquisition. Bonus items I can provide -- strong business network across US and Japan, and Bus Dev experience.

As an Advisor

Work with a team of entrepreneurs who appreciate my hands-on style and would consider bringing me on board upon validating the value(s) I bring to the table instead of merely being an "advisor."

Divya Sornaraja

Deep knowledge of startup business. Effective communicators, master of everything

John Campbell
We worked together  •  Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP. Previously Associate, Morrison & Foerster LLP. Duke grad.
John has expertise across all aspects of building and growing startups - and all the fortunes and misfortunes that may happen to them. I can ... most certainly attest to that because my previous startup (to which John was corporate counsel) was a roller-coaster ride of events that necessitated sound legal counsel.

Yo Koga
They're my friends  •  Board of Director, Japanese Technologies Professional Association (JTPA) and CEO & Chief Product Designer, Drivemode.
He's a master communicator, networker, and persuader as well as being smart and experienced in managing companies. He's been on the investor ... side of the table which is another strong quality.

Ron Moore
They're my friends  •  Founder, roadar. Previously Principal, The Icarus Group, LLC.
Ron is a rare combination of experience and exuberance with a vision for improving safety on the road.
