I’m a business builder and investor.

Michael McCord

My whole life I’ve been fascinated by technologies that enable us to live life more fully and sustainably. This fascination has lead me to a professional career of identifying these enabling technologies and helping them find viable and smooth landings from a business perspective. Beyond being passionate about technology, finance, and investing professionally, I also love tennis, reading, food, art, and being exposed to new experiences and ideas.
