Note from Tom

I run global expansion products at Uber. Before that, I started Google Shopping Express.

I'm a 15+ year entrepreneur in the Bay Area, with my fair share of success and failure. My biggest company (Mercantila) was acquired by Google, and at Google I founded Google Trusted Stores and Google Shopping Express. In 2014, I joined Uber to run several of their start-up projects.

With this background, many entrepreneurs come to me and I see a lot of deal flow, and I work closely with many early-stage start-ups, especially in the logistics, finance, healthcare, and e-commerce spaces. My deal flow comes from these mentor/advisor relationships, and it includes both very early-stage deals and follow-on rounds from prior investments. For obvious reasons, I don't do anything that would conflict with Google Shopping Express, but there's a lot of complementary companies/spaces where I get very early exposure.

Many of my deals have limited allocation, so in cases where my Syndicate > Allocation, I will syndicate those privately to my Syndicate. So if you'd like to see these deals, I encourage you to join the Syndicate. However, the trade off is that I have absolutely **no problems** if you opt out of any deals that don't make sense for you, no questions asked, no score kept. I appreciate other Syndicates that take this approach.

Free free to message me with any questions.

I will syndicate all deals where I get sufficient allocation.

Tom is the real deal. Always spot on with his advice and will go out of his way to help founders however needed. Thrilled to have him on board!
Tom has the ability to relate and empathize with founders because he is one. From when to turn on monetization to how to do a geo rollout, he's had experience on all fronts -- excited to have him on board and draw advice from those experiences.
Tom is one of those investors who goes way above and beyond the money. In the short time he's been an investor, he's already made a strategic intro that I suspect will be very meaningful to our longterm success. He's been an operator, so he knows what you're going through and is...more
