johann is a true asset to alumn.us. He knows his stuff as an entrepreneur and CTO, and is incredibly generous with his time, his contacts, and even his house (I co-worked out of his living room for a few months). He's also humble, smart, and lets you know he is on your side - when we added another advisor to our team, he did a happy dance with us. I am proud to call him a friend.
