My First Call, Every Time
I've known Eric since 1997 and have been involved in several deals with him -- as an advisor, an investor, a consultant, and an employee of companies in which he is invested.

Excellent Ally
I worked closely with Eric in 05 and have stayed in close contact since. He's a wonderful person and truly insightful when it comes to 'what's next.' He's one of the first people I go to when I want a no-nonsense barometer of something I'm considering. He's strong, candid and (most importantly) smart money.

Great Partner: Good Times and Bad
I have worked with Eric for 8 years, and have had a fantastic experience. He was instrumental in helping us find the strategy that has led to significant growth for the business over the last several years, and was a critical ally even when we had hard decisions to make about the business.

Great Early Stage Investor , Great Assistance in Business and Funding Strategy
I've worked with Eric for more than 4 years. Much is said by the fact that his prior investments have both a high success rate and a high regard for Eric. This is not just their opinion, they frequently co-invest with him on start-ups.

Great Investor and Strategist
I first heard Eric (Active Starts' founding partner) talk, years ago, at a venture capital seminar, and was struck by his crystal clear explanations, his no-nonsense attitude and his systematic, transparent approach to investing. We pitched him in 2005 while raising our initial seed round and, ever since, he has proven tremendously insightful and helpful, not only during the funding process but also afterwards, as lead investor and board member: he's consistently been extremely thoughtful and resourceful, a strategic thinker and a great ally.
