How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Having been a serial entrepreneur I know the value of advisors and those who help you connect. Founders that work on real problems and are passionate about solving them excite me.

As an Advisor

It varies and lot depends on the founders or the companies. Anything from occasional phone calls, to monthly face to face meetings.
