I have been an Angel investor for over 20 years specializing in early stage pre-revenue companies. I have made about 80 eclectic investments in the areas of e-commerce, technology, advertising and entertainment. I typically invest in industries I know little about but will avoid, medical, biotech and “green” industries. My notable exits have been Xlibris, LiveLook bought by Oracle and Diapers.com, bought by Amazon for $545 million.
I am a guest lecturer at Fairleigh Dickinson, Wharton, NYU, New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers. I mentor the following women’s groups: Astia, Springboard, 37Angels and The Vinetta Project.
I have spoken at conferences in Kiev, Minsk, Moscow, Dublin, Oviedo, Mexico City, Ho Chi Minh City, Yangon, Phnom Penh, Costa Rica, Buenos Aires and Seoul. I mentor at the following accelerators: DreamIt, TechStars, Starta, FoodFuture and Entrepreneurial Roundtable (ERA).
