Vouch for them.

Rett Crocker
They're my current cofounder  •  Board of Directors, Third Track and Principal, Z Shift. University of California, Berkeley grad.
I've been a cofounder with Frank on at least 4 startups and even more depending on what you count as a startup. He's great to brainstorm wit ... h, a total professional and he does some serious deep thinking. He's one of those founders that you know is going to have your back when you're in the trenches.
Charles Shook
We worked together  •  Owner, Trestle Capital Partners LLC. Previously Managing Director, Morgan Keegan & Co.. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill grad.
I first came to know Frank in a former company that he co-founded. I witnessed Frank and his colleagues successfully launch, grow and ultim ... ately sell that company to a strategic acquiror. Frank asked me to get involved with his new startup and I jumped at the chance given my previous experience with and confidence in him, his skill sets, his plan and team that he has assembled.

Frank is smart, well-read, and intuitive. He's got a successful track record, an amazing network, and has tremendous instincts about figurin ... g out the right things to do, and then getting the most important things done.
Paul Gustafson

Frank is smart, well-read, and very intuitive. His ability to figure out the right approach, and get the most important things done, is unma ... tched.

Frank is an exceptional visionary with an understanding of the technical, operational, and strategic parts of the business.

Robert J. Szczerba
We worked together  •  Contributor / Columnist, The Huffington Post and Board Member, UC Davis Health System.
Rob has a significant career of technical innovation—at last count, I think he had something like 100 patents to his name. I met him when ... he was a senior fellow (and I was a newly acquired director) at Lockheed Martin. His academic background was in AI; his career background principally in systems integration; and yet when he took over Lockheed's healthcare innovation program, he immediately grasped the future of healthcare better than anyone else there, including a number of MDs and MD+PhDs. He immediately impressed me with the breadth and depth of his knowledge on a huge range of technology topics. He has great ideas and the technical chops to back them up with implementation. I've worked with him since we both left Lockheed and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.

Paul Gustafson

I had the pleasure of first working with Paul at Adobe Systems. Among the many folks I've met in the software and internet industries, he's ... one of the very best human beings—smart, funny, caring, and beyond reproach. I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again, anytime, on any project.
