I run an investment fund called Efficient Capacity LLC that oversees over 400 private investments made since 2004. We invest in 2 to 3 companies/month typically writing $500,000 checks. Our interests are in health care, SaaS, iOt/devices, energy and ag tech.
I also recently founded Bad Ass Advisors, a private curated network that connects bad ass companies with bad ass founders. Visit www. badassadvisors.com to sign up or review.
I've been involved in online services since 1983 when I got my first job at Apple and was put in charge of home investing, banking and online gaming. I enjoy the rush of being the underdog with a new project and changing people's perception of the status quo. I've led industry trade associations, been a member of numerous founding teams and personally started a dozen companies. I'm driven to solving interesting, marketing-related problems in big known sectors and being a part of a smart heads-down team where everyone has dirty fingernails. I've also concluded it takes almost as much time and energy to solve a big, fun problem as a smaller, dull one---so I mise as well think BIG and surround myself with a hungry, wicked focused team of brainiacs.
Starting and/or helping to guide Internet-related companies that help consumers and businesses better control their destiny. I'm also been an active angel investor, Board member and/or Advisor to over 100 firms.
