Steve MacDonald’s track record is just so impressive as a tech entrepreneur, an angel investor, and as a mentor to start-up founders. I have known and worked with Steve for nearly two decades and I am not sure I have met anyone with more passion for entrepreneurship, with keener insight for investing, or who possesses better coaching and mentoring skills. He has been an incredible board member and partner at Florida Funders and helped us, as well as many of our portfolio companies, take their business to the next level.

Steve is a creative thinker who loves to challenge founders and push them to grow and scale their business beyond what they even thought was possible. His success speaks for itself, not only with the fantastic exit he had from his own company, but with his investments and coaching of other entrepreneurs. I consider Steve one of the sharpest entrepreneurs and investors I have ever met, as well as a great friend.

I have known Steve for over 20 years first as a CEO when I was an investor in his company. His tenaciousness and dynamic nature led to his phenomenal entrepreneurial success. Now as an investor and board member in my current company, his guidance, unique perspectives, and network have been invaluable to our board and me.

ACCELERATE YOUR GROWTH

When COVID-19 hit more than 60% of our revenue was generated from hosting live tradeshows. We knew we needed to pivot and make layoffs and to have an investor like Steve MacDonald on our side was paramount to making it through that transition. Since then, we have fully pivoted our business model to a subscription model with 95% margins and shown growth of 30-50% month over month.

You learn the most about investors when times are tough, and we learned how big of an asset Steve MacDonald can be if he believes in the team and the mission. If you’re fortunate enough to have a term sheet from Steve, I highly recommend taking the deal.

Steve has been a valuable addition to the Finexio board as he brings experience as both a failed and – ultimately successful – founder and CEO to the table. Learning from his successes and failures, along with a data driven, objective approach to managing and making decisions, has made us become more focused in our management and decision making processes- ultimately leading to much improved outcomes. I would recommend Steve to others that appreciate an objective, data driven view coming from someone who has walked the walk.
