About Eric

My background is primarily as an investor although I'm also experienced working with startups. I'm currently working as an Associate at Hyde Park Angels, the most active early stage investor in Chicago and am well integrated into the VC scene. I've also been working with ShipBob, a logistics startup that just raised $18M, on product and sales strategy. Through my Booth MBA (one year left) and general networking I have a broad network in the Chicago startup community that I am looking to leverage for the company I am looking to co-found.

I have a computer science background but haven't programmed professionally, so I'm looking for someone who can contribute on the technical side. Someone who also understands the business side is a plus, but not necessary.
