What can I do for you?
As tech CEO and venture investor, I have been building startups for 17 years
I offer management services, startup advice, board expertise, mentoring, talks and seminars. And an option to get grilled.

1. get grilled
Are you preparing to speak at a conference, for negotiations or to raise funds? Is your slide deck ready? Your business plan? Your revenue model? If you are a specialist, are you ready for a wider audience? I can offer a fresh set of eyes and a round of constructive input. Get grilled now so you can impress when it counts.
As an investor, tech manager, and venture contest jury member, I have written and critically reviewed a great many plans and presentations.
2. management for hire
To get a startup off the ground, you need people who see the big picture while also getting into the nitty-gritty. An entrepreneurial type who both does and leads.
I thrive when I get to be a motor for initiatives that I believe in.
3. startup advice
Stuck on something? Or simply planning ahead?
Business plan - product review, market research - financial models, valuation - funding applications - press releases, reports, presentations - web profile - IPO or M&A prep, due diligence - you tell me.
4. board director
The right board can help propel a company in the right direction. Your board should demonstrate a rich set of insights, skills and experience, and act with integrity.
I have served on boards for over a decade, including for biotech company BerGenBio and Sarsia, a seed/VC investment group. I have reported to boards and shareholders as CEO, as venture investor and as CFO. Get in touch if you would like to discuss my availability and suitability.
5. personal mentor
We all need a sparring partner.
