“We’re a technology-driven surf company so we definitely connected on that level. He’s an engineer and has a lot of outside knowledge about IT, biotech, and technology ventures. But Bill also knows all the ins and outs of running a business – why companies behave the way they do, market forces and best practices – so he lends a huge amount of insight based on his experience. When we’re fundraising we’ll sit down and go over the different scenarios for growth and risk and he’s a great moral support during that process.”
