Managing Partner (Operations)

Mike has built and led three successful technology businesses focused on using data to personalize and improve end-user experiences. 

Most recently, he was the co-founder and CEO of Everwise, a technology company focused on creating high value, personalized learning experiences for employees of clients such as Salesforce, Genentech, Twitter, Best Buy and AmEx. He led all aspects of the business with an emphasis on sales, marketing, product vision and fundraising ($26M of venture capital with Series B led by Sequoia Capital).

His first venture, Audium, grew into a market leader with its customer interaction technology that, today, helps personalize billions of calls for large enterprises around the globe. After selling Audium to Cisco in 2006, Mike led product for Cisco’s customer contact business unit and, eventually, led strategy for the enterprise collaboration division. 

He also co-founded adMarketplace, an early advertising-technology provider and was a strategy consultant with First Manhattan Consulting specializing in helping to calculate, drive strategy and operate with customer-level profitability, work that led to the widely adopted discipline of customer-relationship management. 

He earned an engineering degree with honors from Cornell University and lives with his wife and young son in San Francisco.
