“It takes blood, sweat and tears to build a company...it is a journey I have been on personally as an entrepreneur. At a very visceral level I feel fortunate and humbled to support the visionary entrepreneurs I meet every day. I relish being a resource for my CEOs—the ‘doctor on call’ as they go through the ups and downs of building a successful company. I'm 24x7, like my entrepreneurs.”
