Group Description

Founder is Hugh J. Sloan III

Hugh completed his undergrad in Boston and was at Stanford University from 1996-2002. Despite not enrolling in a Ph.D Engineering program or receiving any advanced degree, he made two noteworthy accomplishments: Defeating key postdocs from the Hanson Engineering Lab in a famous math challenge and later meeting his future wife, a beautiful blonde Stanford mechanical engineer.

Prior to Silicon Valley, Hugh worked as an associate for Don Carter, the reigning proxy and tender offer king of Wall Street during the 1980s. Don was portrayed fictionally as Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stones 1987 movie Wall Street and their offices at 237 Park Avenue were used for much of the footage.

Hughs current portfolio companies include Hullabalu, WGT Media (World Golf Tour) and Mediamorph. He is on the Board of Directors of several new pre Series A ventures

Hugh is an avid mountain climber, and can be found most summers in Sequoia National Park pictured above, fighting off rattlesnakes and bears with his pals, one of whom is a Naval Academy appointee and former leader of the US Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Division. To relax, he enjoys solving asymptotic expansions of integrals and inverse Laplace transforms while playing Appassionata backwards, or listening to Ke$ha while working on plasma physics with Professor Attwood at Berkeley

Hugh likes working with MIT founders, his portfolio company Mediamorph is run by the genius MIke Sid (MIT 88). He has taken 8.01 and 8.02 with Lewin and short-circuited in 6.002 with Argarwal
