About Robert

Previously co-founded two startups, one in the media/wireless/hardware and cloud space (acquired in 2008) and one in the fintech space (still running). Incredibly adaptive and a fast learner - and very well grounded in fundamentals in virtually all startup disciplines. Former corporate attorney at a major firm, former McKinsey consultant and also was a COO at a major tech-focused organization with senior executives and partners. Traveled the path from the kitchen table to the Board table, having been GM of a Fortune 500 public tech company (semiconductor industry) and also am lead inventor on numerous patents. Understand how to build strategy and culture and run things day-to-day, but also understand how to handle the extraordinary events from fundraising to M&A to partnership and beyond.
