I’ve been immersed in the innovation culture of Silicon Valley for my entire career. Today I do consulting work for a few select companies and startups, through my firm 4thly.
I’ve founded and run three successful software companies, raising both angel capital and venture capital. I have also run two educational non-profit organizations, helping to bring their fundraising and impact to record new levels.
My academic work today is at Stanford University, where I teach entrepreneurship and innovation.
My volunteer work is at the Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship, where we help social entrepreneurs to develop, refine, and scale successful ventures that can have a positive impact in the developing world.
I spent six years on the board of the Stanford University Graduate School of Education, working to bring innovation to K-12 education.
I have served as Chief Mentor with the European Innovation Academy, teaching Silicon Valley innovation methodology to engineering students from around the world.
