|Since 1999 I have been a Founder & 1st Employee of 8 startups. 2 Failures. 3 raised VC & 2 Acquired. 2 reached 100M (@indochino [VC backed] @paretologic [privately held]).
In my early twenties I asked the CEO of Mercurial, a Profit 100 Software Development company that built software for Microsoft & AOL Time Warner Between 1994 -2006, to join the adventure. This was my first exposure to product development and product rollout at the highest levels - I was proud to witness the development and rollout of Netscape 8 to millions of users globally.
The decade ahead was a glorious one. Ups & downs but tremendous growth. I was fortunate to constantly be taking risks every 4 years to find privately held to VC backed startups that had product market fit from day 1 and had the potential to help millions. In a span of that 10 years, I was fortunate to jump on board as 1st employee to two specific companies that had amazing success. That set the course for the rest of my life. I am now on the search for true innovation and change. #4IR
