Working to empower entrepreneurs with capital and customers.
Member since January 2018
My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
I would build empathy and strong relationships with the zombies.
My biggest challenge...
I want to connect with incredible founders who could benefit from the financial and social capital that Wefunder provides.
I want to invest in...
(1) Companies that can have a big positive impact on society (e.g. healthcare, climate change, tackling economic inequality, etc.); (2) Under-represented founders (e.g. women, entrepreneurs of color, geographies outside of Silicon Valley and NYC).
I can be most helpful at...
Connections. And advice on growth strategy.
I think we can fix America by...
I want to get more capital flowing to entrepreneurs who are currently financially excluded -- e.g. women, entrepreneurs of color, companies outside of CA, NY and MA, or in rural communities. And I also want to get more capital flowing to socially impactful businesses.
My most influential mentor is...
Nick Tommarello. He showed me how to think and act like a founder.

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).
