No ivy league MBA here. Just boots on the ground (if you’ll excuse the pun) experience as an entrepreneur and investor in startups. I truly believe the soul of the US Economy is in the growth of small businesses and I’m passionate about finding them, investing in them, and nurturing them to growth.
I don’t have institutional funds demanding 10x returns in 7 years, so I can focus on you and your company and work together to get the right outcome for both of us.
Why should you trust a Marine to invest in your business? Because we know how to work hard, to engage others in our plans, and behave with integrity and honor. We never leave a (wo)man behind and I feel the same way about my portfolio companies.
What I Do
I seek to find, nurture and invest in emerging technology companies which show the potential to disrupt markets.
As an investor, I focus on high-tech investments, hands-on operational support for new product development, and building the strategic ecosystem between executives and investors. I have experience in working with companies ranging from early-stage startups to small businesses in various capacities.
As a entrepreneur, I think strategically, plan collectively and execute through teams of individuals who are empowered and accountable. I have embraced the disciplines needed to effectively manage strategic objectives affecting goal setting, budgeting, sales targets, marketing, staffing and client service operations.
