From time to time, I consult for a small handful of top corporate and non-profit organizations on their product, growth, operational and even public affairs goals and challenges. That has included companies such as Google and Bloomberg LP, and nonprofits such as the Gates Foundation and the Kauffman Foundation. It has also included the United States Department of Defense and Department of State as well as work at the behest of a number of top-tier venture capital firms.

For me, it's an opportunity to work with companies larger than the tech startups I advise and invest in, building deeper relationships, and staying fresh in the challenges that come with growth, scale, and size. I believe those organizations benefit from my experience building and advocating for startups and their products, large and small, used by millions of people.
