David S. Rose Biography

David S. Rose is an Inc. 500 CEO, serial entrepreneur, angel investor, author and keynote speaker who has founded or funded over 100 pioneering companies. He has been described by Forbes as "New York's Archangel", by BusinessWeek as a "world conquering entrepreneur", by Crain's New York Business as "the father of angel investing in New York", and by Red Herring magazine as "patriarch of Silicon Alley". He is the New York Times best selling author of both Angel Investing: The Gust Guide to Making Money & Having Fun Investing in Startups and The Startup Checklist: 25 Steps to a Scalable, High-Growth Business.

From his initial involvement with the first online communities in the 1970s, through founding one of the first personal computer training companies in the 1980s, one of the first wireless data information networks in the 1990s, and the first global angel investing platform in the 2000s, Rose has been at the forefront of innovation in business and technology.

As an entrepreneurial executive himself, Rose is the founder and CEO of Gust, which operates the world's largest online platform and community for entrepreneurs and early stage investors. Gust is used by over 650,000 entrepreneurs in 191 countries to connect with over 80,000 early stage investors. He is also Managing Director of Rose Tech Ventures; Founder and Chairman Emeritus of New York Angels; Co-founder and Managing Director of the AREA Technology Accelerator; and Associate Founder and Founding Track Chair for Finance and Entrepreneurship at Singularity University, the Google/NASA-sponsored post-graduate program in exponential technologies.

Rose was the first investor and Chairman of the Board of JUMP Bikes, acquired by Uber, serves as a board director of KoolSpan; and Moven, and is an active early stage investor in companies including RealtyMogul, Space Adventures, PerformLine, Magnetic and Urbanr.

Rose is well known in the business startup community for discovering and mentoring high-potential entrepreneurs, and has been profiled by BusinessWeek as "The Pitch Coach" for his ability to help CEOs perfect their fundraising skills. He is a regular speaker at the TED conferences, and his TEDtalk on How to Pitch a VC has been viewed over a million times. Rose has been named a Top Writer for five years in a row by Quora, the knowledge-based website where his more than eight thousand answer to questions about entrepreneurship and investing have garnered him over 80,000 followers. His writings have been featured in Inc. magazine, Huffington Post, Slate, the Wall Street Journal and Forbes. Rose is a frequent lecturer at business schools including Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Cambridge, UVA, CUNY, Pace, and Stevens, and he was named Mentor of the Year by NYU's Stern School of Business.

Prior to founding AirMedia Corporation in 1988, for which he served as CEO for over ten years, his career included over fifteen years in real estate development, government, teaching and urban planning. Rose was co-founder and Chairman of The Computer Classroom and Vice President at Rose Associates, Inc. Earlier, he served as Deputy Director of the New York office of US Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

A native New Yorker, Rose has a BA in Urban Affairs from Yale University, an MBA in Finance from Columbia Business School and a D. Eng. (hc) from Stevens Institute of Technology. He is a graduate of PS 6 in the New York City public school system and of Horace Mann High School. He is an Associate Fellow of Pierson College at Yale University and a member of the Entrepreneurship Advisory Boards of Columbia Business School and Yale University.
