My name is Beau Buck. I'm an experienced and successful bootstrap entrepreneur who has built companies from the ground up in investment banking, Internet, mobile, gaming, life science, retail, and speciality foods. I practice the art of trusted liaison and built a robust executive search practice in SF and LA. I have a degree in art history and am interested in arts, science, and ideas. I shoot with a camera that uses film and I drive a car that has a carburetor. I know business, I know starting businesses, and I can recognize entrepreneurial DNA when I see it. I am honest and have distinct opinions, but can still be persuaded of some things. I've served and continue to serve as an active mentor for entities as diverse as film institutes, bio-tech clusters, business schools, and food companies. I am an accredited investor and have been in all kinds of deals ranging from IPO to RTO to secondary market to venture capital. I have seen the booms and the busts and was among the first who bought Amazon as it hit 194/share for the first time, certain it would continue to go up, only to sell it for single dollars some months later. Why do I reveal this failure? Because I have ridden the inevitable economic waves: they happen, and cycles will happen again. My failures makes me a better business person who knows the long game. Here's my LinkedIn Profile.
Basically, when it comes to ramping up a business, I know quite a bit, all proven with experience.
There's been plenty I don't know, so for those situations I learned how to find the people I need to help me. I do that for others, too.
Thanks for contacting me!
