I work with leading Universities (Cal, Stanford, Wharton, etc.) and top accelerators (Y-Combinator, TechStars, 500Startups, etc.), Angel Funds, Family Offices and other investors. My focus is on the application of cutting-edge technology to solve many of the structural problems in venture capital, and creating pathways for truly inclusive and outcome-based access to capital. The flight of capital out of early stage investing is a massive threat to ingenuity and economic growth. Even when deployed, early capital tends to concentrate on the coasts and excludes women and founders of color. CrowdSmart's predictive technology demonstrates that successful early stage companies can be identified with over 90% accuracy. I have held a variety of fellowships, board seats and research appointments at leading academic institutions such as UC Berkeley and the University of Cambridge. In previous academic work, was a recognized global authority on FinTech, alternative finance and crowd innovation. Advising and consulting work has included family offices, large funds, major international foundations (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, etc.), Fortune 50 companies, the World Bank, national governments and global research institutions. Currently advise world-leading blockchain based financial services companies and active on several public policy fronts.
