Managing Partner, Founder Collective
Micah has spent his career starting and funding tech enterprises. It’s what he loves. As an entrepreneur, Micah's raised four rounds of venture capital for over $40M in investment for three different tech companies.
Micah is currently a Managing Partner with Founder Collective, leading seed investments out of San Francisco. Founder Collective was a seed investor in Uber, BuzzFeed, Dia & Co, Plated and more. Previously, he founded Sample6 Technologies – a Boston-based company building a diagnostic and monitoring platform for harmful bacteria in food and healthcare settings. Before that, Micah co-founded Brontes Technologies, a company that sold to 3M in 2006 that developed a hand-held 3D scanner for dentists that replaced gooey, uncomfortable and inaccurate dental impressions. His very first start-up was Handshake.com, a consumer web company in 1999-2001 that was booking house cleaners and black cars long before it was a "thing."
Most interestingly, Micah's first job was for one of Hollywood’s premier talent agencies Endeavor (subject of the TV series, “Entourage”) as a mail clerk. Micah has a BS from Cornell, MBA from Harvard Business School and because of his experience at Endeavor, can fix any make/model of photocopier.
