CEO, e2i, LLC, Executive Director of Keiretsu Forum Academy, Entrepreneur Advisor
As CEO of both public and private businesses (three of which he founded), he is no stranger to the struggles today’s entrepreneurs face as they strive to grow their businesses. He observed that less that 5% of entrepreneurs that present, actually resonate with the investors they meet. After seeing hundreds of entrepreneurs, that actually had promising investment opportunities, fail to get traction with investors, he partnered with Randy Williams, founder of Keiretsu Forum (the world’s largest angel investor network) to start and grow Keiretsu Forum Academy, LLC.
