My focus has always been helping people to get the most out of their lives with computers. First by helping make computer chess games available to the masses, then by teaching people how to use early computers like Apples and PCs in my family’s computer store, then by making access to big directories like yellow pages and white pages easy on the web and then by putting the first natural language bots in instant messenger. It’d be great to see a world one day where everybody can have universal access to the power of computers. I think that will be soon.

Robert is a close friend and mentor who has an awesome intuition for the implications of emerging technologies and business models in the marketplace. Excellent in meetings, Robert rapidly builds concensus using innovative ideas and persuasive argument.
Robert has insight and depth into technology market trends. He’s also a creative thinker. Highly differentiated value and skills from other similar banks/advisors.
There is no faster working mind than Robert’s when it comes to anayzing a deal’s potential and structure. I suggest that if you ever work with him that you get a good night’s sleep.
Robert us beyond smart–and shrewd. His product was both ahead of its time and directional and breakthrough in the bot world–Robert’s always been a great talent
Professional, engaging and well connected – I enjoyed my experience with Robert at Newforth Partners
Robert’s breadth of experience in business is enormous and is only surpassed by his creativity and enthusiasm for innovation
Wow- what a dynamic and “connected” fellow.
It’s hard to have a discussion in the modern high tech world without running into Robert or someone he knows well.
As for brainstorming in a constructive & efficient manner, you’ll never find anyone better. I heartily endorse Robert Hoffer.
