Retired from Oil & Gas industry, and have been volunteering with my technical skills.
Member since October 2020
My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
Perceive the truth and formulate achievable action plans. No use fighting monsters that are only in one's mind.
My biggest challenge...
Managing my time among many interests.
I want to invest in...
I would like to invest in projects that improve people's lives or help them make better choices.
I can be most helpful at...
Give my ear, enthusiasm, and my time. Not sure my advice is useful, though.
I think we can fix America by...
Improve communication with those that function with minimal information and minimal critical thinking. Help people relax, slow down, and listen to each other, because even those with less education have common sense. I think this way instead of trying to come up with a technical solution, because technical solutions exists or are being developed, but their effectiveness is undermined because of unrealistic expectations assigned to evolving technologies.
My most influential mentor is...
I have multiple mentors at different stages of my life. I can't name a single one that is most important.

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).
