About Steve

I built 6 early-stage companies (one IPO; two sold; two profitable) by doing impossible deals (300+ deals in 15+ countries), building teams with a service-oriented company culture, and raising over $36 million in 6 financing rounds.

I love creating and telling the story that gets customers, employees and investors excited to rally behind a company. I'm particularly interested in the B2B, enterprise data, and business operations spaces.


Work hard; play hard. - many
