Hi, I’m Greg.  I’m a founder, investor and professor.  I’m here to share lessons learned from my time building, selling and advising technology companies.

I was the first in my family to graduate college, I then learned how to build businesses, and went on to raise nearly $100M in capital from Microsoft, Sony, Rakuten, Airbus, Qualcomm, Baidu, and some of the top investment funds in the world.  I co-founded and sold my first company, AirMap, a multinational aerospace, and defense firm honored as an Inc.com “25 Most Disruptive Company” and a Consumer Electronics Show “Innovation Award” recipient.

Now I advise companies and entrepreneurs and serve as Chairman of the Board at SailPlan, the world’s leading maritime efficiency, optimization, and emissions measurement platform.  As a tenured professor, I also teach courses related to technology at Pepperdine University, where I am an affiliated faculty member with the Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship.  Through my career I’ve experienced firsthand how entrepreneurs can change the world, and I hope I can help you achieve your goals.
