Michael believes that “Creating a cost effective MVP is crucial to the success of an early stage startup.” An early stage startup needs to stretch the “runway” by reducing cash burn rate and one effective way to do that is through smart outsourcing. Michael is an avid technologist living and breathing the startup culture in the Silicon Valley, the epicenter of Startups in the United States.
He has advised and collaborated with founders and entrepreneurs to build efficient, cost effective and scalable enterprise systems for over 20 years. Michael’s interest in architecture, database systems, high availability design, team building, and his perpetual CAN-DO attitude, has enabled him to work alongside visionary startup founders leading to successful exits.
Michael is a Physics and Computer Scientist by training from the University of Washington in Seattle.
He loves to travel and is planning to travel to the ancient Inca site of Machu Picchu in Peru in the next 5 years. Machu Picchu is evidence of human ingenuity where the ancient architects orchestrated a magnificent work of fine tuned “people” and “technology” engineering.
