I am very excited to announce that I am transitioning to a new role as
Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) with Longworth Venture Partners.
In my previous role as a VC Analyst, I have had the privilege to work
with a large number of very talented web entrepreneurs, especially in
the Boston area. In doing so, I have made some great friends in the
fascinating world of technology startups, and gained valuable
experience on the investor side of this ecosystem.
A few months ago, I identified what I firmly believe to be a great
opportunity to take freedom of speech on the web to a new level. The
idea was to create a user tool (as opposed to a publisher tool) that
enables real-time conversations in the margin of ANY webpage
independently of the website’s owner/publisher.
After some initial prototyping, Marginize was born! MassHighTech did a
great job of covering the initial story here.
A substantial part of my new role as EIR will focus on trying to grow
Marginize into a successful company. I am very excited to take on this
challenge with the help of my co-founder David Opolon (@davidmit) and a
growing team of enthusiastic members of the tech community.
I have started a posterous blog to share my thoughts and lessons learned along
the way, and I hope it will generate some good discussions…
