Todd Embley
Program Director, Mentor of Awesomeness and Coconuts, Chinaccelerator.
Richard has been a mentor at Chinaccelerator for the past 4 years and is what I call one of our "elite" mentors. Not only does Richard have ... a vast and deep knowledge of entrepreneurship, as well as a deep understanding of China, but he is one of the greatest at being able to also communicate this knowledge. His posses that unique ability to intelligently mentor by keeping his advice relevant and actionable to the next-step needs of the startup and not overloading them with everything they should change/do over a long period of time. He's truly an amazing person; I'm always left inspired from any opportunity to interact with him.
