Even back in the late '90s, Ash was one of the few with the experience and wisdom to guide young hot-heads like me towards better solutions, when we wanted to gaffer-tape together a good-enough solution...more to meet the quarterly goals. Alan Jones
“Ash, Michael, and the Morado team have been tremendously valuable for our company. From their quarterly mixers -- attended by luminaries from across the Valley -- to their tremendous willingness to help directly, to their extensive network of advisors/partners/customers, working with Morado has been an unambiguous asset to our company.
One of the strongest high points has been their direct, hands-on operating experience, and their connection to dozens of others in similar positions. The Valley is chockablock with people who can introduce you to a banker or strategist, but when we wanted to speak to head of editorial for a major network, or the CTO of a massively scalable platform, or a senior Ad Sales manager, it was invaluable.”

“We are lucky to have Ash as an investor. He is hands-on when he needs to be, great at providing the right guidance on both operating and financial issues, and has tremendous insight in what it takes to build a great product. I have had the pleasure of working with him for a number of years and I continue to be impressed. As a founder, I appreciate his honesty and integrity when it comes to making the hard decisions. I look forward to working with Ash and Morado in the years to come.”
