0008 Abe Sher - Managing Partner Energetico 20170123
On this episode of Bay Area Ventures we speak with Abe Sher, Managing Partner at Energetico Ventures of Bal Harbor, Florida (www.energetico.com).

Abe is a serial entrepreneur, attorney, inventor and venture capitalist. He’s creating products and services that are making a profound impact on humanity. From creating water out of thin air to bringing “neural reality” to human-machine interactions, he’s creating large scale solutions to big problems and saving lives around the planet.

Abe is an “accidental entrepreneur”. He started out as an attorney but wound up as an executive in the companies he was representing. Along the way he’s crossed paths with and helped the founders of dozens of companies and been involved in over $1 billion dollars of transactions. From helping the founders of Skype in their early days, to the King of Saudi Arabia to speaking to the council of Nobel Laureates on behalf of the King of Morocco, Abe has found himself in situations that few people could even imagine.

His work has won innovation awards from the Wall Street Journal and KPMG as well as the Artemis Prize. He’s won contracts from the Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin, the United States Army, FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security.

Learn why Abe looks for ideas and companies that are pulled by the markets rather than having to push your goods and services out. Here about how to gauge how well a company is doing just by walking around its offices or factories. There is so much packed into this short interview, it’s a must listen.

This interview was recorded on January 23, 2017, on SiriusXM Channel 111, Business Radio Powered by the Wharton School. Bay Area Ventures airs live on Mondays at 4:00pm Pacific Time, 7:00pm Eastern Time.
