Sometimes you get lucky. That's how I feel about having Dave as an investor in Avanoo. Within minutes of meeting him, he understood nuances of my business and marketplace that few others pick up on so quickly. As a result, from day 1, he's been able to offer the kind of tangible investor advice that makes an entrepreneur and a business better. I highly recommend Dave as a mentor, adviser, investor, or however you can get him!
