"I make you believe what you need to believe – to do what you need to do."
Describe yourself briefly.
I love technology and believe that the Internet is deeply impacting mankind. I got started on the Net before there was a web browser, founded a couple of technology startups, led eBay's Platform Solutions Group in Europe, launched a consulting firm helping entrepreneurs with their strategy & operations, invested into early-stage tech startups, led Mozilla Labs, created Mozilla's accelerator program WebFWD, headed up Mozilla's Office of the Chair and invested into social impact organizations around the globe at Google.org. I also created the non-profit organization Mentor for Good, the GyShiDo (Get Your S%#& Done) movement and publish the opinionated The Heretic newsletter.
Today I work with large and small organizations on building entrepreneurial ecosystems, establish open innovation practices and design thinking inside companies and support entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs all around the world. I frequently speak and write about the magic which happens at the intersection of entrepreneurship, technology & global impact. As a trained Co-Active executive coach I work with clients on achieving their full leadership potential.
Describe why you are an Unreasonable Mentor.
Entrepreneurs can and will change the world. And we have some really tough, interesting problems to solve.
So - better get to work. And I hope I can help you on your way.
