I have been a founder or on the founding management team of several early stage companies over the past 12 yrs. Frequently in the role of VP of Business &/or Corporate Development, and have been responsible for M&A transactions, private equity fundraising, and development of strategic partner programs. In addition to this, I currently sit on the advisory board of 4 early through mid stage private companies and have seen a fifth get acquired by a public company.
The common thread to the different areas I have worked in is that they all have something to do w/the Internet. The specific areas I have worked in or advised on include: payment systems, ad networks, online communities/social networks, financial information services, semantic web, indexing/classification/search technologies, content syndication technologies, loyalty programs, and click-to-call technology.
I started my online career working for Reuters NewMedia, exploring investments in the first wave of Internet companies in 1994.
