I've been working in startups since 1996 so I've seen the good, the bad, & the downright nasty. My love is in building product, but I also enjoy helping founders identify their strengths & weaknesses in order to connect them with the right people and give them the best odds to succeed.
Smart, dedicated founders who are interested in following the tenets of lean startup, make smart decisions (and some not so smart), who know what they don't know and are looking for a support network of mentors and investors.
Peter and I have been business partners in several ventures including Launch Pad Ignition and Flatstack. He is trustworthy, dedicated, and brutally honest. His greatest strength is his commitment to helping people succeed by giving as much of his time and energy as he can. I'd go into battle with him anytime.

Peter has been advising me, Cole, literally since my first meeting with a startup. Over the past 3 years I've come to truly value his knowledge of the startup world, ability to cut through the crap, and his appreciation of fine beverage.
