Education
Juris Doctor
Class of 1985

UCLA School of Law is the youngest top law school in the nation. After more than 60 years, our school has never felt bound by outmoded ideas of how law should be taught or studied. Instead, beginning in the 1950s, UCLA created its own tradition - a tradition of innovation.

BA in Psychology
Class of 1980

University of California Berkeley National rankings: In a National Research Council analysis of 212 doctoral programs at American universities, 48 Berkeley programs place among the top 10 nationwide. Faculty awards and honors: There are 8 Nobel Laureates, 32 MacArthur Fellows, and 4 Pulitzer Prize winners among the current faculty. History of UC Berkeley: Historical highlights, arranged by topic, following the campus's development — from UC's founding in 1868 to a turn-of-the-century building boom, a research explosion in the 1930s, the Free Speech Movement of the '60s, and Berkeley's key role today in science and technology revolutions. Timeline of discoveries and contributions by UC Berkeley scholars. Traditions of Cal: Who was the Angel of Death? What's with the "Big C" up there in the hills — and why is it sometimes green? Who wears Oski's jolly bear head and size 54 yellow sweater? Tours and webcams: Check out what's happening on Sproul Plaza, the campus's true heart. See stunning live views of the Bay Area from the Lawrence Hall of Science's perch in the Berkeley hills. Chancellor and administration: Information on Chancellor Robert Birgeneau, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost George W. Breslauer, and how the university is organized. Organizational charts are included. UC System overview and links: On the campuses, laboratories, and medical centers that comprise UC's public educational system, as well as UC's K-12 partnerships, economic impact, and agriculture and environmental resources.

UCLA's primary purpose as a public research university is the creation, dissemination, preservation and application of knowledge for the betterment of our global society. To fulfill this mission, UCLA is committed to academic freedom in its fullest terms: We value open access to information, free and lively debate conducted with mutual respect for individuals, and freedom from intolerance. In all of our pursuits, we strive at once for excellence and diversity, recognizing that openness and inclusion produce true quality. These values underlie our three institutional responsibilities. Learning and teaching at UCLA are guided by the belief that undergraduate, graduate and professional school students and their teachers belong to a community of scholars. This community is dedicated to providing students with a foundational understanding of a broad range of disciplines followed by the opportunity for in-depth study in a chosen discipline. All members of the community are engaged together in discovering and advancing knowledge and practice. Learning occurs not only in the classroom but also through engagement in campus life and in communities and organizations beyond the university.

Career History

2001 - Current

The Cambridge Angels are active investors which invest in and mentor high quality start-up and early-stage companies in the hi-tech, biotech and cleantech sectors which are based in the greater Cambridgeshire area, the 'M11 Corridor', or the greater London area.One of the firm's members acts as the 'Lead Angel' for all of the Cambridge Angels that have chosen to invest in a particular company, providing a single point of contact for entrepreneurs and members. The Lead Angel generally takes a seat on the board once they have invested in a new portfolio company.The Cambridge Angels typically provide £50,000-£500,000 to investee businesses and can provide more than £1 million from members over several funding rounds, seeking to invest in companies valued between £250,000 and £2 million. They seek to invest in businesses which have teams of high-quality entrepreneurs with a track record of leadership and performance, solutions that address major problems for significantly large target markets (greater than £100 million), proprietary features that distinguish them from potential competitors or provide barriers to entry and first-of-a-kind new ideas, rather than incremental enhancements to common products and services.In addition, there must be a fit between the firm's members and the investee team and idea and the funds provided must be used to accelerate the investee company's achievement of key milestones that increase the company's value. Because the Cambridge Angels members typically seek returns of at least ten times their initial investment within seven years, a clearly articulated exit strategy indicating how they will gain such returns is essential.
