He served as the SVP of Business Development at InterTrust and led the IPO in 1999 and the secondary in 2000 (InterTrust reached a $9B market value in 2000). He spent four years as a managing director at VantagePoint Venture Partners where he focused on digital media and telecom investments including Widevine (acquired by Google) and Livescribe.

Prior to Bullpen, he co-founded one of the first mobile social app companies, Xumii, later sold to Myriad Group and now powering over 200M users in the developing world. At Bullpen he focuses on mobile and consumer Internet investments, and sits on the boards of DoubleDutch, SendHub, and Proformative. Key investments include Byliner, PaidPiper and Twenty20.

Adam is a 2x entrepreneur and a 4th generation venture capitalist. In 2009, the same year that Adam graduated from UCLA, he founded Xpert Financial, a secondary market for private securities. After settling millions of dollars in private security transactions and becoming a registered broker dealer, he left Xpert Financial in late 2012 and began angel investing, where he backed such startups as Coinbase, Plangrid and Earnest. Currently his portfolio of investments is valued at more than $1.5B.

Adam then partnered up with Brayton Williams and to change the face of global startup mentorship. The focus of Boost VC on future technology development stems from Adam Draper’s dream to create an Iron Man suit.

In this event, a host like myself or an investor will do a fireside chat with each presenter for 25 minutes.
