I am a Computer Scientist who have been working with startups since I started my first small software development company in 1998. Since then I have done a lot of work in data driven eCommerce/online marketing, business intelligence, SaaS - and more nerdy areas like performance optimization of large databases. In the beginning mostly as a software developer, but in recent years business and concept development - as well as business related analysis and optimization - has taken up more and more of my time. I love helping a company become profitable by solving both technical challenges and business challenges - and can do the most good in cases where it is important to have a solid understanding of both. This is what I am looking for when I invest (money and/or sweat). So send me a message if you think I can be of help. :)

Fifty Years currently focus on synthetic biology and food tech but they don’t limit their investments to any specific verticals. Education, health, civic, community, energy, hardware, software, robotics - as long as there’s a chance to build a massive business while solving a big problem in the world, it’s exciting to them. They invest at the seed stage and often invest in a company’s first funding round and occasionally the second. Fifty Years is based in San Francisco.
