I´m knowing Shaun since severeal years. We work together in the board of jovoto.com and I very much appreciate Shauns deep knowledge and experience in managing and helping start-ups in different phases
Shaun is the best kind of advisor: he guides based on experience. He empathizes with the entrepreneur. Provides tough love and serves as an incredibly high-yield sounding board. Doesn't hurt that he's puts cash on the table! Indebted to him for my education as a young CEO.
Shaun was one of our earliest supporters and investors - though I look to him as more of wise uncle. He is full of experience, wisdom, and connections - and is generous with them all. He has an incredible pulse on the global trends; and despite all that he juggles, he always finds time to casually listen and chat. It has been an honor and pleasure to know Shaun and I look forward to many more years working and creating together.
I am a founder of @Holstee, were we explore what it means to live fully through words, art, and action.
Shaun has been a fantastic investor from the beginning. He met us when the company had just launched and has remained involved as we've grown, gotten larger and as the model has evolved. He is helpful and engaged, but never overbearing. Whether you need introductions, someone to talk product & design with or just a sounding board, Shaun can and will fill those roles. It's been a pleasure working with him through our entire process so far and I would certainly come back to him again in the future.
Shaun is the rarest of individuals. Great analytical chops, fantastic investment experience and an incredible tolerance and patience to see big ideas reach their potential. His Crowd and Collaborative credentials are unrivaled. If you're lucky enough to get his support cherish it.

Shaun is an incredible advisor, investor, and person. He provides guidance when and where needed - whether we were focusing on product, fundraising or partnerships - he was there to offer his insightful perspective and make key introductions. Any entrepreneur would be lucky to work with him.
