ABOUT DAVE

I’m a serial entrepreneur with 3 exits, angel investor in 70+ companies and the host of Venture Studio, a popular podcast where I interview some of the most interesting investors and personalities in NYC tech and beyond. Subscribe here if you’d like to learn about angel & venture investing from some of the best.

I’m also the Director of Entrepreneurship at Columbia University, Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship at Columbia Business School and was the Director of Columbia’s Venture Lab for seven years where I spun-out 70+ technology start-ups based on university research.

My personal blog explores the worlds of entrepreneurship, angel/venture investing, and startups and have been a frequent contributor to multiple publications including Amex OPENForum, Forbes, peHub, and Business Insider, whose SAI group recently named me both one of the “top 100 most influential New Yorkers in the digital business community” and “one of NYC’s top 100 early stage investors”.

I’m an active mentor to Techstars and serve on the Board of New York Tech Meetup, a non-profit organization I am proud to say is now 50,000 techies strong!
