I do in fact read every email I get!

And respond to just about everything.

Get my advice

I got a lot of support as a struggling entrepreneur, and after seven startups my main focus now is paying it forward. While I can’t take on any new 1:1 advisory work at the moment, I have a few alternatives you might consider.

Consider joining me as a guest on the “That Will Never Work” podcast. In every episode, I do a one-on-one mentoring session, almost identical to the type of session you and I might have were you to come visit me in person or spend a few hours with me on the phone.

If you have a single question, consider just recording your question. Periodically, I answer the most interesting questions and release them on my podcast and on social media.

If any of these interest you, click here.

Be on the podcast

If you are interested in being a guest on the That Will Never Work podcast – submit a proposal here. In your message — in less than 2 minutes — I would love you to explain who you are, what you’re working on, and (most importantly) what help you are looking for. No promises, but maybe we’ll have a chance to connect.

Interview me

If you are interested in interviewing me for an article, a podcast or a TV appearance, I’d love to hear about it. But don’t ask me here. You’ll get a much faster–and more accurate–answer by going directly to the source: contact MRPressInquiry@kruppnyc.com and they’ll be able to answer whatever questions you’ve got about my availability.

Pitch your business

I do seed-stage angel investment, but be warned that I’m a little old-fashioned about it. I like to understand what I’m investing in, and I take my time making decisions. So, if you’re a low-energy Bluetooth company, your round is oversubscribed, and you need a decision tomorrow…I’m definitely not your guy. On the other hand, if you’re doing e-commerce, a two-sided network, a subscription business, something in Web 3.0, or anything else that might interest me — and you have a little patience — we should talk.

Hire me to speak

If you think I might be a good choice to speak to your group, I’d love to hear about it. But don’t ask me here. You’ll get a much faster–and more accurate–answer by going directly to the source: contact Marc.Randolph@BigSpeak.com and they’ll be able to answer whatever questions you’ve got about my availability, topics, fees, etc.

Anything else

If you just want to stay up to date on what I’m doing, there’s a mailing list for that. If you’re looking for something that isn’t listed here, just drop me a quick note on this form, and I’ll try and point you in the right direction.

Read my book

If you’re interested in getting a copy of That Will Never Work: The Birth of Netflix and the Amazing Life of an Idea, then I commend your excellent judgment and fine taste in literature. Just click here.

If you’ve got something to say in response to anything I’ve written or said in these pages, you’re welcome to send it to me here. But a better place to do that is right there in the message section. I promise I read every word, and I’ll usually engage with you right there.
