Charlie is one of the most helpful investors I know. Because he really continues to work non stop for the founder he's backed and is always available. In a world of noise, Charlie provides exactly what every founder needs - honest feedback, psychological protection, and encouragement to go the extra mile. As a founder he's been in very tough situations and made it through stronger and unscathed. His focus on investing in technology that represents the future of humanity is also refreshingly different. Take his money! I did.

Charlie is a person for whom I have immense respect. He embodies the quintessence of founder friendly. Charlie is optimistic, passionate, and will run through walls with you. As a founder himself, he is not stuck in an ivory tower of investing - he has eaten glass, tasted blood, and persevered through it. He always champions and works really hard with the companies he has invested in. If you have a chance to work with Charlie - take it!
Charlie's as good as it gets. He's been a founder and it shows. He understands the challenges that startups and their founders face. He's patient, understanding, optimistic and encouraging. He's ready to roll up his sleeves and do everything he can to help his companies. And, he can do a lot. Charlie has an excellent network. He's introduced us to several potential customers and investors. In every case, his introduction and recommendation was taken seriously. He's also been an excellent advisor to my co-founder and I through the highs and lows of building our company. In short, Charlie's the kind of investor you should go out of your way to get on your cap table.
