Sten Tamkivi
They're my school  •  Co-founder & CEO, Teleport, Inc and Member of Advisory Board, Seedcamp. Stanford GSB grad.
Marc has a good background mix of quant-analytical skills with deep behavioral economics so he knows what makes people tick and how the numb ... ers will add up later. He has a broad world view as his path to Silicon Valley has led through some serious businesses in Europe and Middle East. I've enjoyed our broad-ranging arguments since we met at Stanford, and have witnessed his persistence driving his life into new directions since.
Christopher Colin Supko
They're my school  • CEO and Founder | Principal and Managing Director, The Supko Group.
There is nothing Marc can not accomplish! He is thoughtful and measured. he is brilliant but also humble. He is a leader but just as good of ... a follower when required. A brilliant mind! He would be an asset to any technical co-founder and as an investor you are almost assured of an amazing ROI with Marc!
Niko Karjalainen
We worked together  •  Strategy Director, Writing a book. Previously Head of International Strategy & Business Development, Hertz.
Marc has a broad professional background and a life-long passion for entrepreneurship. He has been there and done that as an adviser, BigCo ... executive, and as a start-up founder. This combination gives Marc the foundation to be a great entrepreneur. Marc is also one of the most curious people I know. He is interested in a range of topics from technology to innovative uses for social media to healthcare technology to practical psychology. Hence, he "gets" what is going on in the world and can see new opportunities that cross industry boundaries. In addition to professional capabilities and interests, Marc is great socially and easily gets along with all kinds of people. He really conveys passion about the things he is enthusiastic about, and engages people in real conversations, not just sales pitches.
