Brian Cohen, Chairman, New York Angels
Brian Cohen is not only Chairman of the New York Angels. He’s also considered the father of science and technology communications, having founded tech PR agency Technology Solutions, Inc. in 1983 (and bought by the McCann Erikson Worldgroup in 1997). And he’s been supporting startup tech companies, primarily in New York, ever since.
He is also author of What Every Angel Investor Wants You To Know: In Insider Reveals How To Raise Money For Your Billion-Dollar Idea, and can frequently be found on one investor panel or other dispensing pearls of wisdom in any given fortnight in New York. Then again, he has always been generous with his time and happy to give advice and share his experiences with entrepreneurs.
He’s a rainmaker and so is his boat, Rainmaker, an ocean-worthy catamaran, which may be one of the reasons you haven’t seen Cohen speaking on quite as many panels as usual, of late. Look, he recently co-founded a company called Launch.it with son, Trace. We should have suspected… But summer will be over soon enough and Cohen will once again be one of the biggest New York tech community supporters, investors and mentors on dry land.
Keep up with Brian:
