I like to invest in entrepreneurs that are tackling audacious opportunities that can impact millions. I’m especially excited about wild ideas that re-define a category, leverage network effects, have strong social elements and have solid technology at the core but either way, I love working with founders who have strong product instinct and an intimate understanding of their customer.
I relate well to founders because I’m one myself. I design plus I code the full stack (I ❤️ Javascript), which means I have a soft spot for new frameworks, tools and efficient new tech. I joined BRV in 2011, am typically an early backer and play an active role on the board of companies I invest in. I’ve been fortunate enough to have backed companies such as Jackpocket, uMake, and TalentShare.
