Why am I at Posner?

Because it’s hard to find a unique and beautiful space, with intentional people who are solving some of the world’s biggest problems.

What gets me fired up?

Raising and supporting a great family, building a culture company where people love coming to work, and providing products that your customers tell you are really great. And Ina Garten’s steakhouse steak recipe. 

More about me:

I’m the CEO the Global Accelerator Network. Most recently I was on the executive team at Techstars where I oversaw its business development. I started my career working for W.L. Gore and Associates and moved into the leadership of the American Red Cross in Washington, D.C. I left the Red Cross to manage the west coast sales and operations for a venture backed healthcare technology company that had a recent exit. Following my passion to support start-up companies around the world, I joined Techstars and the Global Accelerator Network. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, bike riding, traveling, and skiing around Colorado.

Ask me about:

What’s going on in the VC industry, how I’m trying to be a good dad, and why being an interpersonal communications major is one the best college degrees.

Some of my flashy credentials:

  • University of Delaware – Bachelor of Arts, Communication and Psychology
  • University of Colorado at Boulder Leeds School of Business-  Masters, Business Administration
