Does This Sound Familiar?

You’re ready to start a business, but you’re not sure how to take your next step.

You recently started a company and you feel “stuck.”

You started working on a side gig, but you’re not sure how to squeeze in the time it takes to grow it into a company.

Your business is starting to grow but you’re losing control of everything you need to do.

You need help hiring, building your culture, getting some funding, or getting your product out the door.

I started this blog to help people just like you. Whether you’re trying to build a great technology company, or you’re building a solo business to make some additional money or gain some freedom, this blog is for you.

I hope this becomes a community where you can come for answers to your questions, to vent about challenges, or just to find support.

A little about me

I work with entrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes to help them start and grow successful businesses.

rob_headshot_2__reasonably_smallI have spent my 25 year career building high-growth businesses and supporting entrepreneurs. I have funded and been a Board member of some successful companies, as well as some failed ones. I have helped take companies public in Silicon Valley and elsewhere. I have started a few companies that went on to be successful and a few that flopped.

I am a serial entrepreneur and a former venture capitalist. I have been an executive in numerous high-growth companies. I have been a mentor to dozens of entrepreneurs through MassChallenge, the StartTank accelerator run by PayPal, at Babson College, and privately. I am also authoring the upcoming book It’s Never too Late to Startup for mid-life entrepreneurs.

I have an undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College, an MBA from the Kellogg School (Northwestern University) and I am a member of the Society of Kauffman Fellows.
