1: I have a general management, M&A and strategy background with experience developing new businesses both on the inside and as an investor. Here’s how we describe my firm’s investment profile on our website: “Blue Sky is primarily focused on backing early-stage companies developing the next generation of breakthrough technologies having applications in critical sectors including financial services, telecommunications, health care and energy.

My goal is not to fund the company, but rather to provide the credibility to raise follow-on money from other angels and venture capitalists. Previous investments include: * Siteler (later funded by Tugboat Ventures) * PBwiki (later funded by Mohr Davidow Ventures) Chris
3: An internationally-recognized expert in the field of information security; frequently quoted by the business and technology press (NY Times, CNN, CBS, NBC, CIO Magazine, etc.); holder of a Ph.D. and multiple patents in the field.
