Want to sell all or part of your business? I'm looking to buy. Contact me with your opportunity.

As an expert in running companies, entrepreneurship and angel investing, I actively mentor founders and new investors on what it takes to start, build, grow and exit early-stage ventures. Heck, with over forty companies in my portfolio and a number of successful exits, I even decided to share some of my knowledge in a book, How to Make Money with Angel Investors & Entrepreneurs: 100 Rules for a Successful Startup Deal. I enjoy giving back to the community and teaching this subject around the world, in classrooms, and in communities that want to better understand how to build a budding entrepreneurial ecosystem that can expand its economy. Feel free to contact me to discuss your situation.
