Shawn is awesome. Shawn is now the general partner of SOSV. Before advising multiple innovative startups at Techstars, Shawn funded early-stage companies such as Genetic Anomalies and Trustplus. His most recent startup play140 was acquired by Oomba in early 2012. Shawn is a veteran of 20+ years in high tech startups as an entrepreneur, intrapreneur, manager, and leader of bootstrapped, angel-funded, and venture-funded companies. Extensive business development, sales, product development, and organization-building history. We love Shawn, even more so when he’s rocking his killer facial hair or breaking ping pong tables.
