Ian already IS a great entrepreneur. He has been ahead of the curve since he was a teenager and wasn't out of university for more than a yea ... r before he founded his first startup. His cv will speak to all of this but what is awesome about Ian is the clarity with which he thinks and the way in which he can explain that thinking to people. He is also fun to be around. I think he will help people gain clarity around their ideas that will help them move forward from both a tech and biz perspective. He is also immensely well networked. Finally I trust him absolutely and he has been advisor on many startups I have been involved with (where I was MD or VO Biz Dev)
Andrew Hunter
They're my friends  •  Co-founder / CTO, IdealSpot and Investor / Advisor, ATX Seed Ventures. The University of Texas at Austin grad.
Ian is a brilliant engineer and one of the most intelligent people I've ever known. His ideas are unique, he takes on extremely difficult p ... roblems, and he has a rare skill set that allows him to elegantly and efficiently solve those difficult challenges.
