Ben Littauer

I’ve been an angel investor since 2008 with a diverse portfolio, ranging from a core of software firms (especially mobile and social) to medical devices, biotech, and pharma. My experience as a technologist gives me credibility with engineers, while the fact that I’ve seen and worked with hundreds of start-up companies allows me to quickly assess their strengths and weaknesses and help the founders refine their business plans.  I have over 25 years’ experience in Internet technologies as an engineer, manager, entrepreneur, analyst, and management consultant.
