Matthew Carlson
We worked together  •  Director of Design, Revenue @ Twitter. Previously Design Manager at Facebook and Principal of Product Strategy at Hot Studio.
Mike believes in the power of digital technologies to change lives in a good way. He's been immersed in digital marketing for big innovative ... companies (EA, Digg, Intel, to name a few) but he's always had the start-up bug and if finally caught with Fitstar. FitStar is the perfect example of Mike seeing a big opportunity and coming up with the killer app. The mix of Big Company knowledge with scrappy entrepreneurship is what makes Mike a good adviser.
Jacob Brody
We worked together  •  Advisor, Livelyhoods and Partner, MESA+.
Mike is a great guy and one of the easiest portfolio Co-founders I've had the privilege to work with.

I would back Mike again no questions asked, he's a hustler with a phenomenal who just knows how to get stuff done.

Mike a thoughtful, passionate entrepreneur. I had the chance to work with Mike both as his employee (at Digg) and as an advisor to his start ... up. Mike has a deep understanding of building great products with stellar brands. His skills are broad and deep – he not only knows how great products get made but he's able to get his hands dirty and see a product ship successfully. You'd be lucky to know Mike and even luckier to work with him.

Mike has a fabulous ability to find external opportunities that act as rocket-fuel for startups, be they partnerships, channel providers, or ... advisors. He has a deep network here in the valley and combines it with a great set of product management & marketing instincts.
Carla Borsoi
We worked together  •  VP Marketing, 6SensorLabs
Mike is extremely strategic and thinks about the entirety of a business - not just the product, but the brand, the company infrastructure, a ... nd how to make all those things sing. Mike also gets things done - so it's not all talk, it's about taking that strategy and bringing it to life. We've had many conversations in my career about where I or the company I'm working with can go -- elevating it to that higher level when called for, and digging into the weeds to figure out how to make things happen. The other thing is that Mike is centered. He knows that the best companies have a core of passion for its mission - and that more success comes from executing against that passion.
Shawn Conly
