Brian is incredibly helpful as an investor and mentor. He is very insightful from a sales perspective, funnel work and where to put your resources on. He is one of those people who grill you on every key decision, poking holes in your strategy and execution and reveal alternative ways to achieve specific goals. This helped us to have a "bulletproof" plan while moving forward and to really think about every aspect in our business. Brian's background as a founder is an asset because he knows what you're going through, what you are feeling and why you might hesitate. And the best part is that he wants to save you from the mistakes he did as a founder! What is more, Brian has a tremendous amount of experience and expertise in fundraising. His insights helped me to raise our first institutional seed round. He spent several hours with me going through my pitch & deck, helping me to phrase the perfect answers to all those tricky investor questions. All in all, Brian is so much more than an investor, he is an ally!
