CEO of FitStar and executive management at companies like AOL, Digg, and Electronic Arts. Business Development, Marketing and Product Management are my passions.
I have successfully raised several rounds of funding at multiple tech companies totaling $50M. I can help you think through the approach from whom to approach, how to determine capital needs, all the way through negotiating a term sheet and closing funding.
Mike is one of those few good guys in the industry; a true diamond in the rough. His experience and knowledge of marketing high-revenue franchises -- using both mass media and grassroots-approach methods -- are unparalleled. His style in communications, negotiations, and execution set new bars of quality and consistency in an industry lacking marketers of this caliber and bench strength.
Mike is an intelligent, hard-working and passionate marketer - and a genuinely good guy. We worked on a number of projects together across the Atlantic and built a very successful, strong partnership. Would relish an opportunity to work with him again.
I've had the pleasure and honor of working side by side with Mike Maser for his entire tenure at Digg.
We were introduced by Kevin Rose shortly after Digg began. Kevin and Mike had known each other for years. It wasn't long before I recognized that I needed him at my side to make it all work.
Mike has phenomenal instincts, great talent, and a never-ending wit and charm that helps pull it all together.
For many years, I've worked remotely from New York, commuting to Digg for half time. During that time, I feel that Mike often acted as my remote CEO, making it possible for me to maintain my family requirements.
In a nutshell, I think the world of his accomplishments at Digg and I honestly believe that Digg could not have been successful without him.
I wish him the best in his future endeavors, at AOL and beyond. I believe we work well together, so I know I'm going to be working with him again in the future.
I've worked with Mike at two companies, Intel and at Electronic Arts. Mike is a highly driven, strategic thinker with a focus on innovation.He excels at laying out a vision and bringing teams of people together to make that vision a reality.
