About Asher

Asher is a highly active angel investor with a large portfolio of well known startups like Omaze and Thrive Market. Before being disabled as a result of a drunk driver colliding with him, he was a SEC attorney--previously a partner at Donahue, Mesereau, & Leids LLP.

Asher spends most of his time split between the Greater Los Angeles area and Silicon Valley. He focuses on companies with strong cultures and agendas designed to benefit society as a whole. This includes making a concerted effort to find companies founded and lead by women and minorities.
