I’m a VC at Techstars, and have the privilege of working alongside an amazing team of people who help hundreds of companies “do more faster” every day. Previously, I was also the Network Catalyst at Techstars, a role dedicated to the support and empowerment of the entire Techstars Network. I’m an active Mentor and Board Member at GridCraft, RescueTime and QwikCart. Prior to joining the Techstars team in 2012, I was a Co-Founder and CEO of Filtrbox, Inc (Techstars, Boulder 2007), which was acquired by Jive Software (NASDAQ: JIVE). I spent two years at Jive as VP of Strategic Partnerships after the acquisition.
I’ve started two other companies in the past. JustOn.com (founded in 1999) was sold to Novell in 2000. After 3 years at CreekPath Systems in Boulder (moved from SF in 2002) I started Newman Venture Advisors and spent about 2 years helping other entrepreneurs get businesses off the ground before starting Filtrbox.
