I've supported technology startups for the last decade. Over half of this time was spent at Apple as a founding team member of their global SMB channel and as the founder of their first Entrepreneurship Evangelism channel. To support startups at Apple, I partnered with the world’s best founders, venture capitalists, incubators and accelerators to identify and solve their most pressing strategic issues. My division at Apple has grossed more than $350M USD in sales and is still the best team globally in Apple SMB's division. The other half of my career has been spent inside of or founding startups, two of which failed, one of which exited successfully. Currently, I have equity positions in 38 companies across 18 countries, ranging from B2B SaaS platforms to the number one website in surfing and medical and drone technologies that improve lives and our world every day. Most recently, I've co-founded Brinc.io, a hardware accelerator, education platform, and product development studio, to unlock the world's data so we can improve our lives. We have offices in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Bahrain, Barcelona, London, and Tel Aviv and have supported 400 founders and shipped 32 new products in the last 3 years. I speak at events around the world with the US State Department, China Speakers Bureau, GLG and Stamford and am a KOL / Influencer for Huawei and Insta360.
I write about underreported tech stories out of China.
