Steven has worked for 1863 Ventures in a few different capacities related to marketing and community building. In each facet he was a great leader, motivator, effective and timely. He pays attention to detail, is very process oriented and yields positive results. He is also a fast learner and great conversationalist. Fast forward years later and I am thrilled to still have Steven in my life. He has grown to be an amazing entrepreneur and now investor.

Steven from day one was helpful. I first met Steven via email when he became Techstars’ Regional Manager over the USA. His candor and availability only added to his diligence and communication. Steven asks questions to understand, documents his experiences, and takes action to deliver value. At this point I am honored to call Steven a friend. He shows up authentically, coordinating and collaborating all along the way!
