Speaking Topics
  • Keeping Your Head While Those Around You Lose Theirs: Positioning Capital for Success in the End Game

    Audiences: Corporate leaders and Private Equity (PE) investors: asset allocators for Private Family Offices, corporate funds, governments, banks, NGOs

    It is time to pay the piper. After 30+ months of battering from a global pandemic, coupled by trillions of dollars in expenditures to help buffer the impact for employees, SMBs, and entire industries such as travel and tourism, the bull is finally in retreat. The cost of capital is rising. The classic signals of >4% inflation and <4% unemployment rates are evident and investors are pulling capital from high risk investment structures such as VC Funds at breakneck speed. Economic storms are common. They have an impetus, a life cycle, elements of uncertainty and opportunity. What signals inside this particular downturn do we need to look for? Where can asset allocators strategically place capital to set it up for success as this storm transitions to its most important stage: the emergence of economic opportunities?

  • Illuminating Success Factors for Early Stage Tech Companies

    Audiences: Entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, students or Early stage individual or corporate investors and asset allocators

    As a speaker, advisor, board member, and host of the decade-long podcast CEO coach and now VC Confidential, I have helped thousands of companies to launch, grow, pivot, and thrive. For founders and leaders of early stage tech companies, as well as for potential investors seeking to understand the angel / early stage investment landscape, I speak often about Wizards and Executors. The Wizard is the 'idea person' often a technologist. The Executor executes on the ideas of a Wizard and builds a company around her/him. One famous example would be Zuckerberg and Sandberg. In this context, I am an executor. I build and optimize the value of tech companies.

    • Of Wizards & Executors: the Assets and Attributes of Successful Entrepreneurs and Startup Companies
    • The Capital Stack: On Beyond Venture Equity! How to Capitalize Your Company at Every Stage
    • Powerful Boards of Directors: The Secret Sauce of Successful Enterprises

  • Gender Lens Investing: The Power of Investing in Market Anomaly

    Conventional Venture Capital is anything but a meritocracy. The numbers are well known: Women receive 2% of venture capital; men receive 98%. At the Series A, women are awarded an average of 16% of the valuations awarded to men. Women raise 44% of the capital raised by their male colleagues over the deal. Women exit at the same rates as men, but do so about 12 months sooner on average. And when they exit, women have been returning an average of 35% higher ROI to their investors for more than a quarter of a century! THAT. IS. NOT. A ROUNDING FIGURE!
