Founder of boldstart ventures, partnering from Inception with bold, technical founders reinventing the enterprise.

Before you build your team, before you write your first line of code, before you even take your first check—that’s when boldstart gets to work.

We collaborate with technical founders well before company creation, lead pre-product rounds at Inception, and rally our early adopter enterprise network to help turn bold ideas into category-creating iconic companies.

Inception Investor/Board:

Snyk, BigID, Kustomer (exit to Meta), Blockdaemon, Protect AI, Superhuman, Front, Security Scorecard, and previously Greenplum (Pivotal), GoToMeeting (Citrix), LivePerson (LPSN)
