Learning to Share

As an entrepreneur of 20+ years, turned venture capitalist for the last decade+, I’m passionate about investing to accelerate innovation and empower the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Yet the older I get the more I realize I have to learn.  And because one of the best ways to learn is to teach, I am developing classes and workshops such as Startup Secrets for institutions like Harvard, that are shared here.

So my goals on this site are to:  

Provide frameworks like Startup Secrets to empower Entrepreneurs, including Videos, Slideshows and Articles

Bring these to life with an expanding library of real world Case Examples.

Seek out thought leadership in industry areas where I invest such as 

Foster collaboration and sharing of best practice among the terrific entrepreneurs and executives who I'm lucky enough to work with and invest in as well as connect with and support the next generation of founders.

What can you do in return? 

  1. Subscribe to the RSS feed anonymously to get updated posts
  2. Sign up for information on new classes and workshops and to let us know who you are  
  3. Give feedback here and throughout the site on whatever other areas you would find useful

I hope you enjoy the site and I look forward to collaborating with you to accelerate innovation and empower the next generation of entrepreneurs!

Best, Michael
