Since 1996 I have been running Internet startups during good and bad times of the Internet economy. I excel at tuning business plans, defining product and market entry strategy, positioning, psychology and e-business models.
I boot-strapped one company and sold it, saved 2 companies from bankruptcy and raised Series-A funding with Index Ventures and Mangrove Capital Partners. I also slept on Mike Arrington’s sofa during the early days of TechCrunch which only means that all the other rooms were taken.
I now manage StartupYard where I select and later mentor teams on a daily basis during the program. I am also the inventor and developer of a mobile Poker Bankroll Management application for iphone and the founder of WhatWine, The Wine List Scanner, a smart little mobile app that tells you in a restaurant which wine from the wine list will go best with your food.
