Carl a well-known perpetual venture capitalist (http://pelionvp.com/), recipient of four new patents over the past five years has been on every continent including Antarctica. He has swum in every ocean including the Baltic, the Black Sea, and both the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans. He is also an ardent family man who politely conquered Mount Kilimanjaro because he thought all these adventures were safer than being a venture capitalist.
In a typical Carl style, he has conquered the business world too. Apart from being in the venture capital world for 21 years, he has served on more than twenty-five public and private companies including Novell, AT&T, IBM, Control Data Corporation and SUN Microsystems at either senior executive level or on the board of directors. Did I mention he was also a professor of Mathematics!!!
