Mark Goldstein 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, the bulk with solid outcomes. I’m driven to solving interesting, marketing-related problems in big known sectors (i.e. retail, investing, gaming, accounting) 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 now just think BIG BIG BIG and surround myself with a hungry, wicked focused team of brainiacs.
I’m also been an active angel investor, Board member and/or Adviser to over 50 firms.
