About Me

I'm Fred Pope

I am a passionate technologist, and proven entrepreneur. I've built companies and set records for growth, and I've completely crashed and burned too. I've been at it for over 30 years, and I have more fire in my belly today than I ever have.

Working is my favorite sport and I get the most satisfaction from the thrill of accomplishment and achievement, especially when I can witness someone else reaching new levels of performance, or when I can see a system work as it should. My heros are the great innovators, and managers throughout history, and I love studying and watching great companies.

My speciality is in deploying, and overseeing complex systems and turning ideas into working solutions that are performing jobs for customers. The economist in me always like to quantify my results in dollars.

I currently split my time activley developing and studying companies and innovation applying what I know, learn and understand about technology to choose the winners in the public markets. The two practices are complimentary since it is my hands on experience with the technologies I invest in that enable me to see what's next and understand the nuances between what actually works and what is just hype.
