AGILEVC My idle thoughts on tech startups

I’m an investor, entrepreneur, and helper of technology startups.

I’m currently a General Partner of NextView Ventures, an investment firm focused on seed stage internet-enabled businesses.  I co-founded NextView in 2010 with my partner Rob Go and David Beisel.

I started in the VC business as a Principal at Point Judith Capital, an early-stage firm.  I joined PJC in 2005 and served as a Principal at the firm through early 2010.  During this time I co-led investments in FanIQSittercity, and Multiply and sourced investments in Music Nation and NABsys.

Prior to becoming a VC, I was a startup guy myself.  I was part of the founding team of LinkedIn, and served as Director of Corporate Development from the company’s inception through our early growth phases. Before that I was an early employee at PayPal, and worked in product management and corporate development roles through the company’s IPO in 2002 and subsequent sale to eBay later that year.

I went to college at UPenn, and received degrees from both the School of Engineering and Wharton School of Business.

    Realizing there are basically only 3 pitch story-arcs I like. 1. "Let me tell you about the future" - a story about where things are headed
