My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
Common sense. Knowing how to start a fire, knowing to boil water before trying to drink from a water source. Owning a car that can survive a EMP bomb and is easy to repair (1966 VW Beetle) so that I can leave an urban environment quickly to escape the eventual rioting from a breakdown in society.
My biggest challenge...
Losing weight and being healthier.
I want to invest in...
Tech and innovative ventures.
I can be most helpful at...
Provide funding, and wisdom from (at this writing) 48 years of hard living and learning to be better. I've been working in IT for 20+ years. I've learned hard and soft skills from IT infrastructure to people skills. Outside of my career I've spent a variety of time trying to be a better person, failing, and trying again.
I think we can fix America by...
Healthcare. A government option to force the insurance industries to price services and prescriptions against a "standard" for like services and prescriptions offered by 'Medicare for All' plan. Break the strangle hold insurers, manufacturers, wholesalers, PBMs, and every other middle-man has on pricing medical services from providers to pharmacies.
My most influential mentor is...
My mother, although she passed 12 years ago, she still guides me even though she's not around for advice. I try to think about what opinion she'd have on something, and react accordingly.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
