While I have focused on the Software Industry, I have experience at a senior level in the Biotech and the Computer hardware arenas, as well as nine years with Price Waterhouse in the UK, USA and New Zealand, which taught me a lot about international business generally.
Xtremesoft has given me the platform to nuture ideas and start new ventures in the social networking, retail, biotech, even in infomercials and Ads, as well as the 'cloud' computing arena; to participate in the public offering of two computer hardware companies; to participate in the sale of a company in the Biotech market; and to continue to nuture a bunch more in a variety of markets.
I consult on Boards; with CEO's and with non-profits. I have a good understanding of the use of electronic networking
I like the diversity of the businesses, but the issues are always the same - money and people.
I run Pine Brook Ventures, which invests in companies, ideas and offerings - some good, the majority bad over the last two years. They do say you have to fail plenty to get one right.
