Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

It’s making things happen that is most important.

I have been pulling things apart to learn how to build new things since I was a kid.  It might have been home-made hold buttons on old rotary phones, underground wiring for backyard speakers, finely sharpened and balanced lawn mower blades, circuits for boosting microphone gain, high-performance motorcycle engine, drive train and suspension systems, software routines, or dozens of others, including, eventually, the mission specifications for the first anti-satellite missile systems.  I studied engineering and physics to elevate my understanding of how to make physical things work. I went to business school to learn how to pull apart non-physical things and see the pieces so as to be able to figure out how to put them together in different ways to make new things happen.

Throughout my career, I have repeatedly employed broad multi-disciplinary skill sets to make new things happen, from integrating science experiments onto the space shuttle to creating pathways for investment capital to reach emerging markets to evangelizing the power of digital network based business models to raising PE funds for alternative asset class investment.  I am a financial modeler and investment evaluator.  If new stuff is gonna happen, it’s got to be worth it.     

The world runs on ROI. The returns and the investments are hardly all denominated in dollars, but they no doubt are returns and investments just the same.  Innovation is the key ingredient (in addition to elbow grease which is at least as valuable) in generating returns.  Not just technical innovation, but system, policy and business model innovation.  Xinova focuses on all these types of innovation to build ROI for its customers and all its stakeholders (including me!) in order to make stuff happen. That’s the exciting part.
