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.
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.
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.
