Carter Laren


Problem solving > platitudes.

Occasionally free; always focused

No good founder, company executive, or fund manager has problems that can be solved by the simple recitation of clichés or regurgitation of stock advice. I don't have all the answers for anyone, but I do enjoy asking questions, exploring the reasons behind things, challenging existing assumptions, and developing and debating solutions with other smart, critically-minded people. I'm rarely available to take on new responsibilities or clients, but sometimes I am, and I always welcome enquiries.
