CONTACT

Getting a reference through someone I know is the best way to get attention from me as an investor, or any other capacity. I am only co-investing with strategic investors and I am not leading an investment round. So please propose or contact me only if you have a lead investor with a termsheet. I prefer US incorporated companies.
