In 2004, at the age of 19, he was one of the co-founders of the Go BIG Network, the world’s largest fundraising platform for startups, which grew to over 330,000 small businesses and millions of dollars in funded ideas.
Three years later in 2007, Eric launched IdeaBuyer.com, the first Online Marketplace for Intellectual Property to allow for the licensing and sale of patents. IdeaBuyer.com has since listed over 10,000 patents and has attracted an all star list of buyers including Johnson and Johnson, HP, 3M, and GE.
In 2010 Eric then became a partner at Virtucon Ventures, an incubator for early stage Internet companies. There, he co-founded Fundable.com, a crowdfunding platform for startup companies where he is currently the President.
