I've known Dana for more than a decade - he is a former boss (at eBay) and investor in a company where I was an executive (Zong). He gives exceptionally helpful business advice, and as a father of 3, he shares our company's mission.
I've been building companies in Silicon Valley my entire 20+ year career. After dabbling in angel investing for 5 years, I became a general partner at Matrix Partners in 2008. Today I do angel investing both personally and on behalf of Matrix.
My experience cuts across multiple disciplines including sales, marketing,
finance, technology and product management at companies such as eBay, Netscape, PayPal and Respond.com. I've started at zero and managed 2,500-person teams.
Most recently I spent 5 years at PayPal, where
I was a senior vice president and managed all business operations, including product, sales, marketing and technology. I am also a board
member at iRise, QuinStreet, GOGII, Polyvore, Zendesk and Zong.
