Boston Angel Investor and Startup Growth Advisor

I'm Mike.  I'm an angel investor and startup growth advisor.  I've made more than 25 angel investments with 4 exits so far (HubSpot, Locately, GroSocial, ThriveHive).  I serve as an advisor to a number of companies and am on the board of directors of Repsly, a mobile CRM company and Attend, an event revenue marketing 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!
