Entrepreneur since 1990. Founder of over a dozen companies in enterprise data, cybersecurity, AI, professional services, entertainment, luxury brands, and the travel and leasure markets. Advisor to both startups and investors.
Often companies experiencing rapid-growth, shifting markets, new competition, or other threats to the future of the business need outside advice from those that have been through these challenges before. Mistakes in execution, hiring, funding, strategy and other internal factors can also create problems difficult to solve and sometimes requiring an outside, fresh perspective to evaluate and address the problem. I have successfully resolved issues for many companies in trouble, as well as turned around failing efforts. When faced with less than desirable outcomes or even the possibility of complete failure, I can help create strategies and bring the resources necessary to save a venture worth saving.
Having been on both sides of the table as an entrepreneur and investor, I can provide complete insight and guidance to those raising capital for their startup OR those looking to make investments, particularly for initial rounds of professional funding from VC, angel groups, and high net worth individuals and family offices.
