Entrepreneur, CEO and Advisor to many software startups in the Mobile and SaaS areas. I have been lucky to get many wins along the way including four successful exits as a Founder – Veraz going public on NASDAQ, Espresso Logic acquired by CA, CyLAN acquired by Hifn and Internetware acquired by Symantec.
Helping Entrepreneurs is my passion and some of the ways I do that is by teaching next generation entrepreneurs at Northeastern University and UC Berkeley, mentoring at Google Launchpad and by contributing my time to TiE Silicon Valley where I am also a board member. Helped organize many TiEcon; one of the largest entrepreneur conferences in the world.
Before getting into startups, I worked for over 10 years in various marketing, product management, and business development roles at Ascend/Lucent, Castelle, Telebit/Cisco, Sun Microsystems and 3Com. I have spoken at many conferences and written three books on Internet-related topics and in the process of writing a book on Marketing & Sales for Entrepreneurs.
