I am humbled by the great strides and sacrifices entrepreneurs take in building a business. They should demand and expect the same level of commitment to success from their long term capital partner.

POINT OF VIEW

I am grateful and get fired up for the opportunity to interact and work with the most passionate minds in business. As a venture capitalist we are in a unique position to see constant success and failure, but most importantly, how to apply these lessons learned in partnerships with our portfolio executives and colleagues. I am an intense competitor at heart but realize it’s all about the people as it takes a village to help build and be part of something great.
