As a VC, angel and entrepreneur, I view Max is one of the most connected individuals I’ve met in my 20 years in the Silicon Valley – he is up on all the trends, the hot companies and seems to know people on both the investment and entrepreneurial side. The ongoing joke at the Keiretsu Forum meetings (typically 120+ attendees) is that Max might have brought half the audience with him as a ‘guest’ that day…He also is a genuine pleasure to be around and does his business with integrity from what I’ve found over 8+ years of knowing him at the Keiretsu Forum. Max blends a sense of enjoyment for his work with a keen awareness of how to put people together and get business done
