Robb has been there since Day One of MobileIgniter (so much for anonymity). His feedback and insight helped bring an idea to realization. Every step of the way through prototype, beta, product release and first customer, Robb has been a high-valued company asset. He brings smart money as an...more investor. His mentorship is solidly grounded in the principles of lean startup.
Robb is an excellent mentor, a smart & strategic investor, a hard worker and a great leader. I met Robb when my company took part in the BoomStartup incubator program he co-founded. Robb is very enthusiastic about mentoring startups, and about entrepreneurship & technology, which...more translates into motivation of those around him. He cares about the projects and teams he is involved with, and Robb's style is open and inviting, engaging and thorough. Robb is one of those rare mentors with a unique capacity for balancing empathy with accountability and knows how to call people to action. It has been an honor and a pleasure getting to know Robb, and I consider those in his network to be very fortunate.
I would definitely recommend Robb. He asks very insightful questions that are clearly based upon relevant real world business experience. Robb also has excellent connections, particularly in the Salt Lake City business community. He would be an asset to any team.
Robb is a thought-leader, champion of the Utah startup ecosystem, and a super-angel making a variety of investments independent of "the herd". Robb invests a significant amount of time and energy coaching and mentoring entrepreneurs and startups.
I have worked with Robb on two different startups of mine now. As an investor, Robb is a great sparring partner when it comes to customer and market validation. He really pushes you to look at problems from all angles and make sure that you are truly building something that customers want. Robb...more is also excellent with startup metrics and helping entrepreneurs measure and track the right metrics that will help drive their business. Robb is a person who will help bring the best out of a startup and an entrepreneur and I would definitely recommend him as an investor and advisor.
Robb is a great investor to have in your team. Straight forward, always available and his energy just pumps you up. Being a Startup outside the US and a founding team with no MBA's has its cons. Robb saw past through it and went straight to our traction and market. He committed fast and...more helped us all the way.
