Steve is a true asset to the startup community and provides an invaluable service with his work at Founder's Space! He also is a great matchmaker for cofounders.
Steve is the only person that I have ever met who matches my enthusiasm about my business! (that says a lot!) He is a strategic thinker who understands both the business side as well as the design/product side. A rare breed indeed.
Steve is sharp, friendly and passionate. He understands the needs of both investors and start ups.
