V.P. Business Development
Ezra Goldman has
a 20-year history in the high-technology market, as a software architect
and project development leader, general corporate manager, facilitator
of strategy and marketing, and mergers and acquisitions.
He puts that experience
to use as one half of Lachman Goldman Ventures, a private angel/seed
investment partnership that helps launch very early stage Internet and
network companies. Together with his partner, Ron Lachman, Ezra actively
advises and lends a hand as needed at any of the dozen
exclusively on hands-on early-stage investing, Ezra was Vice President
for Systems Integration at global integrator SHL Systemhouse where he
helped build the Chicago/Midwest practice from startup to over $30M.
Ezra was vice president
of marketing for the services and technologies division at Kodak's INTERACTIVE
Systems Corporation. He managed the systems development and integration
services, and the production of networking software products such as
Unix System V based NFS, TCP/IP and OSI and their licensing to over
75 licensees worldwide.
Ezra holds a B.S.
in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Illinois.
A long time ago Ezra was a member of the UNIX systems development team
at AT&T Bell Laboratories and contributed to a number of pioneering
implementations on multiprocessing systems including the large-scale
UNIX/370 project and can still pass, occasionally, as technically clueful.
