I've lived the full startup cycle from 'idea hatched in a dorm room' to 'switching careers' to 'raising VC' to 'that's my picture in the paper' to 'closing down the company'. It was painful at times but offered many great learning experiences. Those lessons learned are incredibly valuable when I work with entrepreneurs at LaunchCapital and TechStars. I am always happy to personally help with everything from high level strategy, market research, pitch feedback, etc.
In addition to my own experiences, I can tap LaunchCapital's ever growing network of early stage entrepreneurs and co-investors for advice, best practices, intros for new hires, etc.
