Hunter credits his success as an active angel investor, advisor and HomeBrew partner to his previous experiences.
“I don’t think I could be helping if I didn’t first have a career in ‘doing,’” he said.
For Hunter, ‘doing’ includes leading Youtube’s product management team for 9 years, managing product and sales at Google, joining the founding team of Linden Lab, getting his MBA at Stanford, and managing teams of over 40 people.
But Hunter is more than just a driven, creative leader. He is also a thoughtful writer. Hunter manages a blog by the name of “99% Humble, 1% Brag.” In this blog, Hunter gives insight and understanding to the oftentimes confusing world of venture capital. He covers an array of topics on his blog, including pitch decks, economic concepts, COVID-19 economic and cultural impact, fintech and more.
