Currently a co-founder at LiveBinders and previously CEO of BoldFish, an email marketing software company sold to Siebel Systems.

My mentoring work with Astia centers around helping entrepreneurs prepare for investment. I work with them on the presentation of their company and business plan to make sure it is investment-ready. I have raised tens of millions of venture capital myself and have assisted others in raising hundreds of millions.

My current company, LiveBinders, allows you curate information including uploaded documents, websites, and rich media into a neat and organized online binders for sharing, presenting, and collaborating. We have over 600,000 registered customers primary in the education space. This company is bootstrapped, so I have a great perspective on building companies with and without outside capital.
