In this episode, Hall welcomes Adam Haber, angel investor and CEO and Co-Founder of Trellus.
Adam is dedicated to serving his community. As a Roslyn School Board Trustee from 2009-2018, Adam fought for residents and children, and helped bring the Roslyn School district back from the brink of financial ruin from an $11.2 million theft. After Hurricane Sandy, he personally initiated Project Long Island to repair over 200 damaged homes in Long Beach, through All Hands and Hearts, a disaster relief organization where he is currently a board member.
Adam is exceptionally proud to be a board member of the Hagedorn Little Village School since April 2017. As a small business owner and entrepreneur, he has real experience creating jobs, attracting capital, and managing complex budgets. He had a 22-year career as a commodity options trader, has owned three restaurants (one of which had a Michelin Star), and is a non-operating principal of ScanlanKemperBard, a Portland- Oregon-based commercial real estate merchant bank. Adam is also an avid angel investor, a member of the Long Island Angel Network, and has sat on the boards of several start-up companies.
Adam was a Director at the Nassau County Interim Finance Authority (NIFA) from July 2015-April 2016 and was Deputy Chief of Economic Development and Government Efficiency for the Town of Hempstead, from January 2018 to December 2019. He also writes a column for the Island Now called “All Things Political.” He resides in Roslyn with his wife Renée, and has two children Stephanie and Ethan, whom he is proud of.
Adam discusses his angel network, how the industry is evolving, the biggest change he expects in the next 12-24 months, some of the challenges he faces, and he mentions some of the companies he has invested in.
