accept, survive, adapt, innovate. Face and embrace the changing future and do not commiserate on the past, learn from it, reflect on the great experiences and memories but live today and look forward.
My biggest challenge...
my age and the finite nature of time. Time is not a renewable resource.
I want to invest in...
green tech, a better world, make strides for the betterment of global health, find a realistic path to modest profitability while doing the right thing for the planet and for the human condition
I can be most helpful at...
small business bootstrap mentor, explorer of ideas and relationships. Share experiences from 50 years of work.
I think we can fix America by...
money out of elections, only equal public funding. Eliminate or re-frame PACS and fund raising...nada. National base line health care for all. Income inequality must be addressed and find consistent modest ways to rebuild the "middle class", make strides to improve the lives of the working poor. Support public education and access to technology.
My most influential mentor is...
my big sister a retired technology executive, unflinching giver of time to seemingly lost causes and homelessness.

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).
