About Gates

Focused on "emerging technologies" that would be appropriate for either an IT department or a reseller to use for resale or internal use. Examples of software startups I have worked with or continue to work with include Pedestal Software (security SW, acquired by Altiris, which was acquired by Symantec), VARCompliance (VAR certification and BOM optimization SW, acquired by Netformx and Desktone (latest strategic investment led by Cisco). Services firms include Evernet Systems (acquired), Charter Systems (acquired by BISYS), Onward Technologies (acquired by CSC) and currently Hub Designs (data/MDM consulting) Nowspeed (social media services) and Artisan Infrastructure (MSP hosting services). Have consulted to VC (Longworth Ventures) and incubator (Reach). Looking for a next big thing to add to my portfolio.
