This blog represents my own views, not those of my employer, Brooklyn Bridge Ventures.

Do not pitch me a story or book review for me to write about. This is my personal blog. For more info on that, see this post.

Charlie is a Partner at Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, working on very early stage investments in the "Greater Brooklyn" area, which also includes Manhattan and the other boroughs of New York City.  He previously spent two plus years at First Round Capital, where he sourced the firm's investments in GroupMe (sold to Skype), Backupify, chloe + isabel, Refinery29, Docracy, Singleplatform, and Salescrunch.  He founded New York’s largest independent innovation community group, nextNY, and was voted one of the 100 Most Influential People in New York Technology three consecutive years by Alley Insider. 

Charlie was the Co-Founder & CEO of Path 101, an innovative startup in the career guidance and recruiting space, which raised half a million dollars and was a Business Insider Startup 2009 Finalist. 

Before founding Path 101, he spent a year as the Director of Consumer Products at Oddcast, which he joined after two years at Union Square Ventures.  There, he was part of the original investment team, along with the partners of that firm, Fred Wilson and Brad Burnham. 

He met Brad and Fred while on the venture capital investments team General Motors Asset Management, the pension arm of GM, where he also did investment analysis work on late stage direct investments, buyouts and secondary fund investments.

A New York native, Charlie also teaches entrepreneurship at Fordham University and can be found blogging at www.thisisgoingtobebig.com.

In his spare time, Charlie bikes everywhere, plays softball, dodgeball, and kayaks.
