Are you an investor or entrepreneur?

I've invested in almost a dozen startups and have been co-founder of two.

If you are an entrepreneur, tell us about your startup?

I'm most excited by Science House as it is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to give something back to science (I'm a true geek at heart). The company helps scientists draft business plans, create websites, pitch their ideas, and obtain funding.

If you are an investor, what do you invest in?

Lately mostly health care (see which helps families deal with autism) but I have also invested in a banking company (Higher One) and a music licensing business (Sir Groovy).

What value do you add to the group?

I really enjoy meeting new people and I have a passion for startups. Some interesting skills as well (named inventor on more than 300 issued patents, public speaking experience through my improv comedy team, and 5 years work experience at a casino).

What would you like to get out of the group?

It's not what I can get but what I can give. :)


I'm the founder of Science House (­m), a new organization that helps bring together scientists and investors/entreprene­urs to ignite new businesses. Hoping to bring new ideas to investors and new opportunities to entrepreneurs.
