He has built a portfolio of over 90 early stage companies and in 2016 he was named Best Startup Ecosystem Developer in the entire Founder Institute network, which has a global network across over 150 cities.
He is also the host of the Ambition Today podcast where he explores the hardships and heroism of entrepreneurs, creators, investors, and builders who ambitiously changed the world.

Plus, find out which three mentors Kevin would take to dinner, where he would take them and what he would ask them.
