I run fast. For the Wefunder investors reading, I've been recommending successful investments to VCs for years now and it's time for ordinary folks like us to benefit. I don't have a financial advisor or millions of dollars, but co-invest with me and I'll do everything within my power to ensure a return on our investments, and do so supporting good causes.
My biggest challenge...
There have been a lot, certainly too many to describe in this small box. I led my first company through the hardest of struggles...I built the company out of my 2-bedroom apartment and grew it to more than 40 employees. I almost lost it all when a lead investor backed out of our $25MM round at the last minute. I've laid off my beloved co-workers, prepared for bankruptcy, and survived negotiations with the most hostile parties. I've seen & persevered through a lot and I love to share my expertise with early-stage founders.
I want to invest in...
I'm interested in funding bleeding edge and paradigm-shifting technologies in biotech and healthcare.
I can be most helpful at...
I love to help out my fellow founders and currently serve as an advisor to 15+ startups.
I think we can fix America by...
Inequality is prominent on so many levels in America... wealth, healthcare, education, etc. Enabling ordinary people (other than billionaires) to invest in successful startups and participate in wealth creation is an important aspect of fixing America. Another part is creating and funding startups and small businesses across the country, not just in Silicon Valley.
My most influential mentor is...
I've had two amazing mentors in my life, both incredibly tough professors during my B.S and Ph.D. degrees. They were relentless and pushed me to achieve things I never thought I could ever obtain.

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).
