When I'm not growing investment businesses I like to give the hand up that so many gave me through investing in startups, working with VCs, getting on my soapbox to speak at events (my father says I haven't met a microphone I don't like), and advising. My goal is for fellow builders, crazy enough to think they'll beat the startup odds, to achieve where previously they couldn't.
