I love to help people start and grow ideas. I've co-founded a number of technology companies, including: Union Motion (electric vehicles), MediaCore (ed tech), Pusher (realtime messaging) and New Bamboo (digital agency). Collectively they’ve raised many millions, and several have exited.
My primary focus is my active companies, but I also sit on the boards of several SaaS businesses and advise companies from time-to-time.
My interests and expertise lies in and at the intersections of:
♻ Electric vehicles and green energy.✈ UAV/drones and aviation.☁ Software as a Service (SaaS).$ Impact investing, fundraising, M&A, sales and marketing growth hacking.
