Modsy is here

Copy of Living room emptyOne of the things that I love about what I do is the people I meet.  I am fortunate to sit in a spot where I get to meet the entrepreneurs, the angels and the VC’s.  I met Shanna Tellerman when she was at Google Ventures.  When she came through NYC we had breakfast.  I loved her energy, her smarts and her passion for building businesses.  She had already built and sold a company and ended up on the other side of the fence as an investor.

All these photos shows what you can do by taking an empty room with different angles and put in various designs and pieces.  They have spent plenty of time in Beta before launching it to the world to make sure it is user friendly.

When Shanna told me what she was going to build I thought it was pretty genius.  Nobody is better suited than her to build this.  Check it out today.

    Shanna was my intern at a gallery on the upper east side when she was in college – it was clear then that she was going to strive for success in everything she set her mind too.

      I completely forgot she was in the art world. Sharp mind

      Christine – oh my! I’ve thought about you so often. One of the best summers of my life! How are you and working at the gallery was so inspirational, art is so important and being surrounded by beautiful things every day that summer left is mark.

    Shanna was at GV in 2014 when we finished 500 Startups and I remember our call was one of the best chats with a later stage VC.. Was pleasantly surprised to see shes a GGV founder!
