As well as being a serial entrepreneur, he has successfully endeavored in the world of venture capital, not only as someone who has businesses financially backed by venture capitalists and receiving over a half $1 billion in less than 30 years to build his businesses, but actually becoming a venture capitalist that helps firms choose winning businesses from the myriad of businesses he is presented with daily.
