Since then he has worked with early stage companies as a founder or early employee and has been instrumental in raising hundreds of millions of dollars in Venture Capital. He co-founded BIGWORDS.com, a dotcom darling which ended up going bust in the dotcom bomb of 2000 and he was the first employee and is a part owner of Goldstar.com. John has been asked to speak and teach all over the world at events ranging from Web Attack to the St Gallen B-School World Leaders Symposium, the Leiden Veerstichting conference for Global Leaders, TEDActive twice, and many TEDx’s.
