The first global gathering to use AI for grand challenges
Curator and Program Chair · The first multi-stakeholder global gathering to use AI for tackling humanity's grand challenges
What I Do
Product / market fit, product pricing, startup and marketing metrics, helping with initial sales and validate the business model. Fund raising help and general assistance with the usual startup chicken-egg issues.
Amir will offer a different perspective--his product expertise is deep, and he'll give you feedback on a very technical perspective and work hard to give you constructive criticism and introductions within his network.
Founder @BetterBack, @Everest, @Fundrah, Prez @JBChristopherII. First solo woman to break $1M on Kickstarter. Feat on Shark Tank. Entrepreneur, doer, dreamer.
From the moment we first spoke, Amir's advice and insight have been incredibly valuable. He is one of those rare investors who combines passion for early product with an understanding of long-term vision... and he provides unwavering support in helping you get from the former to the latter.

Amir is an amazing investor. He invested in our startup, BrokerRoster. He's been a great asset.
Amir is a colleague and friend of a few years. His grasp of market opportunity is unparalleled and he is among the few investors who has cut his teeth on the product side of corporate development. Having numerous successes as a business unit builder and overall doer who understands operations acutely, he has parlayed that into great investment strategies for our fund and partner funds. Amir is someone whom I trust implicitly and I look forward to many more years of doing business together.

I'd recommend Amir for any company looking for funding. Amir is a supportive investor who never once put himself above the needs of SignNow, a company I was CEO of and he invested in. You could point to a handful of good investors to have in Southern California, and he would be one of them. He tirelessly works to build the community down here, often without financial benefit to himself. Thanks Amir!
Amir has always been available to us for advice and is one of the best-known and well-respected investors in Southern California. He really cares about building a community of entrepreneurs and encouraging a culture of risk-taking and innovation.
I have known Amir for more than three years now. He is fairly understated when you first meet him, he doesn't make a big deal out of himself. He has brought great value to our company on direction, product and bizdev. Most of all he is decisive and very committed even when things don't go well.
