Before joining Arthur Ventures I was out in Seattle working at Microsoft in its Corporate Development Group, executing M&A deals and strategic investments primarily in the online business.
Before Microsoft I was back in Minneapolis working at Piper Jaffray in its Technology Investment Banking group. The senior bankers advised companies on stuff like IPOs, M&A deals, investments, etc. while the junior bankers like me learned a lot of fancy PowerPoint and Excel tricks. And worked a lot.
