Roadmap your day, stay in sync with your team, and do your best work, no matter where you work.

Make sure information and updates flow across the organization on a predictable basis.

All this talk of “remote work” has finally caught up to reality and present times — I think we can basically just call it work now. While everyone has been talking about it for years, I think that most companies and corporations didn’t prepare properly for it and now are faced with numerous challenges. Though we do expect a lot of people to go back to a physical office eventually, remote/hybrid work is here to stay and you need a platform that will help you manage it no matter where you are.

So we started looking into space early last…


Looking for a team to collaborate with and make a difference

My parents told my siblings and me that we had to start a company by 26. So I did at 18 while in college out of my dorm room and have been on this amazing journey for the last decade.

**TURING IS ON PRODUCT HUNT TODAY** https://www.producthunt.com/posts/turing-2

You sometimes never know what you’re looking for until you see it… So I want to start by thanking Mark Rosner for sharing Turing with me. It was our first fully digital post SIP investment a few months ago — we got introduced on a Thursday and wired on Tuesday. Also our first YC investment too because they priced the round and didn’t have a crazy post cap SAFE.

We love the idea of analog to digital transformations and Turing is a prime example of this. How do…

Step by step guidance directly in Gmail

A few years ago my dad came back from Peak Pitch — a startup/VC event where you pitch investors while on the ski lift — and told me one of the crazier stories I’ve heard. If you know my dad, he’s a big storyteller but this one was unique…

He was at a table with some people and they all started to say where they grew up and one of the founders Joaquin Roca said Brooklyn. My dad being from Brooklyn followed up with where? He said Flatbush. My…

When I first started applying to MBA programs a few people suggested I look into Executive MBAs as well, which I thought had a negative connotation to it. A bunch of C-suite execs in suits, which turned out to be completely wrong.

Lets backtrack a little… I’ve been in startups/tech for over a decade now when I started my first company in college (Brandyourself.com), did PR for a little and then a few other digital media related companies before my latest role in venture capital for the last few years. I love my job as it allows me to meet…
