What people have to say

Aakrit Vaish

"The founder's journey is lonely. While the Board is there to serve the company, you need someone looking out for your best interests. Sean has played that role for me for almost a decade. He is my first call when faced with a big decision. He has a rare skill of being able to understand the nuance behind the situation and break it down nicely like a math problem."

Robert Romano

"Sean has been a mentor for me through two startups now, and he's always the person I go to when I truly need intuitive clarity around a subject. He does a masterful job at simplifying any challenge that founders face, including rapid scaling, founder conflict, and team culture. He gives the kind of advice you just can't find in a book and only comes from extensive experience. He also always gets right to the point, uncovering the core of your issue before you even realize it."

Lorraine Ma

“Mike was critical in our journey of finding product/market fit and honing our pitch to raise our first round. As first-time founders of color, we often relied on Mike's empathy and honesty to help us navigate the emotional challenges of building a startup.”

Cyriac Roeding

“I’ve known Mark for 15 years, from mobile to biotech. Mark is that extraordinary individual who can lead a venture studio to breakthrough success. He sets high targets, dives deep, and moves fast. He knows which flaws in a concept or startup are fixable and – importantly – which aren’t. He reads people’s potential exceptionally well. He uniquely bridges the 0-to-1 and 1-to-n phases of startups. And perhaps most importantly, he is a really good human being with strong values.”
