Serial entrepreneur turned investor, mentor, author...
Most Interested In
Impact, especially poverty, hunger, and the environment. 80:20 emerging markets and US/Canada. I like startups that solve real problems. I'm a rare investor who likes tried-and-true businesses, where tech is added later after building a profitable core business. Show me innovation in business models to excite me.
Not Interested In
If you start your pitch with "an app that" I'm not interested. If you are solving a "first world problem" I'm not interested. If after two sentences I can't tell what you do or why, you are going to get pitched one of my books, blog posts, or podcasts.
Problem, customer, solution, typically in that order, ideally iterated 30 times until it flows.
