My Background

I work in the early-stage and lower-middle-market (0-$50MM in annual revenue ) CPG, FMCG and consumer product marketplace. I sold one company, built six and crashed two.

I currently co-own a small company in the pet category and one in mobile phone tower leasing, but do most of my work through Basecamp InQb8r, where I incubate and fund startups, compile market intelligence about the early-stage (0 to $2 MM in annual revenue) CPG, FMCG and consumer product startup segment, and consult for investors and other consumer product marketplace participants about this segment.

I live on a farm in Colorado with my wife and dogs.
