Brick & Mortar Ventures leverages its management’s combined experience and valuable networks within the design, construction, and facilities management industries to (i) identify and evaluate new technologies, and (ii) add concrete value to its portfolio through introducing partnership opportunities, facilitating distribution agreements, and matching companies with industry luminaries as value-add advisors and directors.

Darren is a Stanford-trained engineer and Stanford MBA who remains closely connected to the young Stanford entrepreneurial community. Darren is also founder and developer of Soma CoLab, a San Francisco-based co-working and incubator space for Stanford alumni.
