Summary

I have focused on VC and PE investments since 1995, completing 20 professional investment cycles (+ several others as an angel investor). In 2012 I formed BetaAngels, bringing together a group of accomplished investors and company-builders to back ventures via Sole-Purpose Vehicles in a VC-like way. Efforts to date: Corephotonics (opto-electronics, Tel Aviv), Caliber (search/recruitment, NY), GameAnalytics (big data, London/Copenhagen), DogBuddy (pet services, London/Barcelona), Clover Food Lab (fast clean food, Boston).

Prior to BetaAngels, I founded / led two investment initiatives and managed a third - most recent of these is VC firm Adara Ventures in Spain, which I founded in 2002, served as Managing Partner thru 2010, continue to serve as an Advisor and in which I retain significant GP ownership.

Between 1985 and 1988, I worked with McKinsey's Iberia office. Work for a client, led to my appointment as CEO of a 35-store supermarket operation in Central Spain. Between 1988 and 1995, we doubled sales with a net addition of less than 10% in selling space and produced a 4X return upon exit to Auchan.

I have been a member of YPO/WPO since 1992, recognized as a Global Leader for Tomorrow by the World Economic Forum, and hold degrees from Harvard (M.B.A.) and Dartmouth College (BA, Computer Science - with Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa honors). I am a citizen of Panama and Spain, a proud father of 3 and do my best to maintain a single-digit golf handicap.
