For a more personal POV, I am a husband and a father to four children. I love my family.
The major reason for starting this blog is that I write for my children. I hope they will see what their father’s daily life has been like and that I love them very much.
My job is this: I help build ventures. I work as a VC and began doing so in 1998. It is a fulfilling and challenging role. I firmly believe that venture capital, if practiced in the right way, can be an enabling and positive resource and a force for good in the world.
I started a VC firm called Kepha Partners. So, I now also am an entrepreneur.
If you’re a company Founder, know that entrepreneurship is tricky. You can transform industries and generate many meaningful jobs; but, many years of hard work can result in complete failure, too.
Our partnership has seen both paths happen. We have a team with over 50 years of operating experience and over 40 years in venture capital. Our perspectives may be helpful to entrepreneurs.
For entrepreneurs to succeed, I don’t think it is about where you went to school or the pedigree of your background. The ones who do well, in the end, do something that sounds very simple but is very hard to do every day: They keep showing up.
