OUR TEAM GET TO KNOW US

Entrepreneurial investing should provide more than just money. A start-up venture capitalist becomes a company's financial strategist, headhunter, investment banker and corporate therapist, providing support and confidence to a team. As board members, we are active and have the energy, experience and contacts to help take the company to the next stage and beyond.
