I've invested in almost a dozen startups and have been co-founder of two.
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.
Lately mostly health care (see www.handholdadaptive.com which helps families deal with autism) but I have also invested in a banking company (Higher One) and a music licensing business (Sir Groovy).
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).
It's not what I can get but what I can give. :)
I'm the founder of Science House (www.sciencehouse.com), 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.
