"When my father passed away we were still growing and raising money on a $15M valuation. Luke was critical to navigating that struggle because he'd been there before. His father had passed away early in his journey. We got through it, closed an oversubscribed Seed round and now fielding $50M pre-money terms sheets a year later."
Jim Gibbs, Co-Founder & CEO at MeterFeeder
"Luke was a God send. I am a crazy entrepreneur that decided to launch my company only a few months from giving birth to my first son. Luke told me about his first company and how the husband and wife co-founding team were also expecting a baby at a critical time. He not only helped me sunset lower priority projects so I could focus on what counts but gave me the tools to maintain it. This has helped put us on the path to being a big Baltimore tech startup story."
