I have been a VC for 15+ years and have helped build many successful companies. I have "seen the movie" before many times and can help guide the founders. Plus, I have been a successful angel and seed investor for almost 20 years, so can bring the benefit of that set of experiences as well.Describe what you have done, what you are doing, and the kinds of things you are interested in.
I am an active investor with investment experience in 250+ companies. I am the founder of multi-stage VC firm, Cota Capital and seed stage venture firm, Streamlined Ventures. Over the last 20 years, I have seed invested in over 100 companies, many of which have gone on to become significant successes. Areas of interest include mobile, Web 2.0, enterprise computing and the infrastructure technologies for those spaces.
Before this, I was a senior member of the team and helped build Globespan Capital Partners, a leading VC firm. There I led investments in numerous companies and was an active member of their boards. I also helped my colleagues at the firm evaluate and invest in over 100 other companies.
Prior to that I helped build FAC/Equities, a prominent investment banking and research boutique during the 1990s. During that time, I was named a Wall Street All Star by the Wall Street Journal and was recognized as one of the top research analysts on Wall Street by Fortune magazine.Describe the most impressive thing you've done.
