CEO of SnowShoe. Advocate for startups everywhere. Former scientist and Badger. Youngest person to fly through a hurricane.
I've raised $700K+ from the leading angel investment groups in Wisconsin, but more importantly, I've turned down several term sheets from midwestern angels and "VCs" due to poor valuations and/or worries that the funders didn't know what they were doing.
I've done a lot of prototyping work for http://snow.sh, using both CNC end mills and 3-D printers. We were able to fully prototype our first product in about six hours. We also won the TechCrunch Disrupt hackathon (http://snow.sh/ack) by building a web-connected door lock in 24 hours.
Wow. Claus is a machine. If you're in hardware and you haven't spoken to Claus, shame on you.
Claus was well thought out and clear in his thoughts. Great listening to his ideas.
Claus is an extremely bright entrepreneur. He works hard to help grow the company and is diligent in his role. It was a pleasure to work with Claus - if you have the opportunity to work with him and SnowShoe, take it!
