David Furneaux

Dave found his purpose to form, build and invest in companies early in his life.  He feels fortunate to count over 20 successful companies where he played a role in forming, building and investing in them.  Areas of real impact include Internet Infrastructure, platforms and software, and cyber security companies.  In the last decade, he also began building health related and agriculture/food technology companies.   Notable successes include Aironet, the first major wireless LAN company, Philsar, the first Bluetooth technology company, and Lufa Farms, the largest Urban farm.  Interesting fact:  he is also an artist.
