My McGraw-Hill book (School for Startups) was published in June 2011 and reached as high as number 9 on all of Amazon (not just in its category). The book continues to be a best seller after 3 years and received 4.8 stars from over 85 reviewers. It was excerpted by Entrepreneur magazine and the Wall Street Journal India.
I was featured in a UPS commercial, was referred to as the Simon Cowell of venture capital by CNN, and have appeared on NPR, MBNBC, CNN, and in the New York Times.
I led the fundraising team for healthpons, the Travelocity of healthcare and presented to White House officials in the Spring of 2013 and was invited to the WH Christmas party in 2013. Raised $1 million at a $15 million pre-revenue valuation!
At the age of 25, I started the American Computer Experience and grew the company with no capital infusion to $12 million in annual revenue and to over 700 employees. The company was the world’s largest technology training company for children, and enjoyed tie-ins with Microsoft, Intel, Lego, NASA, and many others.
