In 2002 Jerry decided that the venture capital work that earned him a place on Forbes ASAP's list of the best VCs in the country was just not enough. Then in 2007, he became a certified professional coach.
Jerry describes himself as an old guy who was there at the beginning. Over his career he has been a tech reporter; a co-founder of one of the earliest ad-supporter web-based media businesses; co-founder of the first Internet-specific venture firm (CMG@Ventures); a co-founder (with Fred Wilson) of Flatiron Partners; a teacher; a writer; and now a Life/Executive Coach focused primarily on entrepreneurs. Jerry lives in Port Washington, NY, with his family.
