M&A Advisor

For the past two decades, my work has focussed on designing and executing better exits. This is my boutique M&A Advisory firm.

Writer - Early Exits Book

One of my personal goals is to share new knowledge about exits with other entrepreneurs, investors and M&A professionals. I do that through my blog and books like Early Exits.

Speaking engagements

Another way I enjoy exchanging new ideas on exits and investing is to speak at investor, entreprenur and M&A conferences. When ever I can I post the video and PowerPoints here.

Fund Manager

After my first exit, I worked as a professional investor. I started and ran a successful hedge fund, venture capital fund and angel fund.

Business awards

My first company resulted in an embarrassing long list of business awards and my first exit. The company we started in grad school is now part of Cisco.

Academic awards

I managed to extend my education to my 30th birthday before getting my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I graduated at the top of my class - twice.

Putting Something Back

When I was a young entrepreneur, my mentors helped me in more ways than I can describe. Now I devote some time to helping the next generation.

Me Not Working

I believe it's also important to have fun. These are some of the things I do when I'm not working.
