Partner at BlueRun Ventures, an early stage venture firm focused on mobile-centric companies. Led investments in AppCentral, Foodspotting, Thumb, AppRedeem. Personal investor in Appurify and others.
I've worked in the tech industry for 15 years, as a company operator, founder, and now as an investor. I have hired and fired, I've built specs, listed pricing, sold customers and closed investors. Probably have a sense of how to help a startup.
As a venture investor taking hundreds of pitches a quarter, I have perspective on what works and what doesn't in raising capital. In addition to just listening to pitches, I work to score quantitatively each and every pitch anonymously to identify statistical trends in what works and what doesn't. This quantitative analysis has appeared in TechCrunch.
