Entrepreneur, technologist, published author, columnist, public speaker, philanthropist, and founder of over fifteen companies, I've raised hundreds of millions of dollars for ventures I've founded or co-founded.
A sampling of ventures I have founded, co-founded, or funded include: Digital Evolution, US Interactive, Media Platform, Akana, Desktone, ServiceMesh, and the Enterprise Cloud Leadership Council, which merged into TM Forum.
In addition, I have invested in venture capital funds and charitable organizations. VC’s include: Trident Capital, eCompanies, Monitor Ventures, and—just recently—a new firm in alliance with some of the most notable names in the technology industry that will be announced soon. I am an active investor in numerous seed level startups in media and technology, the vast majority of which have gone on to successful financings.
