You know, casually racking up the startups - co-founding over half a dozen in just the past 15 years. Numerous companies, investments, features in The New York Times, WSJ, The Guardian. Oh, and their latest endeavor - The Battery. The San Francisco exclusive social club into which you’ve no doubt spent the past year trying to weasel your way - drawn to it’s chic, luxe interiors (merci, Ken Fulk). Add in a family life filled to the loving brim with three children, and, well, of course they've the warmth of people who genuinely couldn’t be any happier.
