What Others are Saying
Chris has been the ideal early stage investor for Narrative and has helped tremendously as we've grown. His contributions have manifested themselves in a few key areas:
Network: As others have pointed out, Chris knows everyone and just as important everyone likes him. Anytime we've needed an introduction outside of our existing network Chris has delivered.
Advisor: Being an entrepreneur himself, Chris has always been there to talk through some of the challenges big or small in running a company. While this makes him "hands on" he isn't omnipresent. In that way he strikes the perfect balance of adding value without distracting from the day to day operations of the business.
Friend: Above all else Chris is a genuinely good guy. Starting a company is hard enough without being surrounded by people you wouldn't hang out with IRL.
