You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Saas • Wireless • Business Development • Strategic Partnerships • Strategy

Key Accomplishments

Been involved in a few early stage companies, that have all grown 30% plus a year, or were positioned for an exit...(and most exited even if small!)

I like building markets for new or nascent technologies like Iridium (1st handheld Satellite phone), ExtremeUSB (patented long distance HW connections via USB for special markets), Location Based Services on WAP phone...(in the era before GPS or smartphones.) Software or Hardware solutions.

Focused on growing businesses internationally, or where there is a big market for the solution.

Mentor for BCIC, Wavefront and Foresight and Acetech using the Lean methodologies, and the Business Canvas approach.

Lots of guesses....lets go validate them to win!!

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Looking for the second and third leg in an ideal startup with the technical cofounder being the most important, as I do the BD/Sales/fundraising activities. Third leg would be Operations/Finance type, to be brought on when needed.

Want someone that is fully committed, that works well as a partner....people with big egos, or think they know everything can move on, as I am not interested.

Look forward to hearing from you, if you need a strong, focused and energetic business cofounder.

As an Advisor

I like to get involved in building relationships with partners in the ecosystem. I roll up my sleeves and get involved vs just managing or directing.
