Mike Tamaru
Managing Partner

cfo-coo to technology companies

I have led teams at companies in the Consumer and Enterprise technology segments.   These include crowd-funded and seed-funded startups, growth companies that include Jawbone and Linksys, and multinationals such as Cisco Systems and Philips Electronics   


I help my clients develop infrastructure to scale for global growth, raise equity and debt, drive M&A activity, manage business planning, support implementation of supply chains and contract manufacturing relationships, implement go-to-market plans, implement G&A systems and processes, and lead acquisition integration.     

My clients include scale-ups in the Wearable Tech, Digital Imaging, Robotics, consumer IoT and Connected Home segments, as well as, strategic acquirers, venture funds and other investors in these segments.  Across my career in high technology, I've been employed with or consulted to over 30 tech companies, most of them in the connected hardware space.   As a result, I have exceptionally broad and deep domain expertise in consumer electronics and connected hardware, which places me among a handful of experts in the world.

I received my Bachelor degree from UC Berkeley, an MBA from the University of Chicago and I hold the CPA certification (inactive status).
