I co-founded a venture-backed (FoundersFund, Gates Foundation) company that achieved millions in revenue, led it as CEO across through the Series B, brought in a "professional" CEO and operated as Chief Evangelist.
I've been involved in four founding teams, leading to three exits and one ongoing concern.
I helped Learn Capital raise and deploy Fund III, with highlight investments being Minerva, VIPKid, Coursera, Photomath, etc.
I catalyzed LearnStart, the Seed brand of Learn Capital, and raised a $25M Seed Fund.
I am helping to catalyze a $100M Million Lives Fund to focus on what will save the most lives over the next decade.
I absolutely recommend Michael. He's both an accomplished entrepreneur and an intuitive early stage investor who knows the edtech space extremely well. I am an early stage entrepreneur myself and his advice to my company (nearpod) has been extremely valuable, in particular regarding how to build a scalable sales organization.
Michael is a great investor partner. He is has been incredibly supportive and has used his experience as an educator and entrepreneur to help us find creative solutions. I highly recommend him as an investor.
Founder at Maker's Row • Worked at @google @goldman-sachs, @the-brookings-institution • Studied at @university-of-california-san-diego
Michael has been an incredible mentor and friend throughout the startup process. He's well informed, and well educated on some of the most critically important subjects. His advice and experiences has been a deciding factor in my entrepreneurial ventures.
