I work with Jeff at Amplify.LA , and he kicks ass. Jeff, and the whole Amplify crew in general are a major value-add to any startup they work with.
Founder of a company Jeff Solomon advised
Jeff is a seasoned, humble entrepreneur and investor. It is rare to meet people like him -- smart, a good listener, and following through on what he promises. Not only is he a respected mentor and advisor in the LA start-up scene, he is an strategic investor who has a track record of running profitable businesses.
I'm an in-the-trenches type of entrepreneur and invest the same way. I'm very product, user experience and business model focused. I know SaaS, lead gen, mobile and gaming very well. I will personally invest in 6 companies @ 25K each this year so I will do whatever it takes to ensure they win.
Describe what you have done, what you are doing, and the kinds of things you are interested in.
I am a Co-Founder & Partner @ Amplify.la. I sit on both sides of the table literally. I also founded Leads360, leading SaaS provider of B2C lead management software. Venture backed by Rustic Canyon Partners and Volition Partners, grew revenue to more than 15MM and staff to over 80 people.
I love startups that have a clear path to revenue; I appreciate the "cool" social consumer stuff, and it might mean I'll miss a few deals, but I like to focus on things that can build recurring, consistent, reliable streams of revenue.
