Boston Angel Investor and Startup Growth Advisor

I'm Mike.  I'm an angel investor, startup advisor, go to market and growth executive.  I've made more than 15 angel investments with 3 exits so far.  I serve as an advisor to a number of companies and am on the board of directors of Repsly, a Boston mobile CRM company.  I've worked in marketing at a number of different startups in Boston and San Francisco.  Most recently I joined HubSpot as the fifth employee and as CMO helped the company grow from about a dozen beta customers to over 15,000 customers, 1,000 employees, $150m in revenue, and an IPO leading to a $1.7B market cap.

I'm passionate about giving back to the Boston tech community and hold open office hours to pay forward all the amazing advice and guidance I've received from others over the years.  Let's chat!
