Goodwyn/Powell are just my two middle names and I'm just a guy (and a dog) that flies an old plane off a farm on the Big Sur coast to Palo Alto. I spend my time helping a group of investors who are bent on finding the next Facebook or Google.
Currently, I'm helping three companies building:
-the world's largest brain;
-a new technology that will process over half the world's credit card transactions before 2020;
-a marketplace that will be acquired by Amazon in 2018 (but didn't exist in January).
I am also starting work on two Palantir-related companies, one looking to remove humans from combat and the other transforming traditional manufacturing in the old economy. In all of these I work directly with the founders to identify individuals before we reach out so that our contact is thought-through, specific, and hopefully on a problem we think they care deeply about. This site is a collection of personal and professional interests.
