These days, Shawn speaks and lectures, invests in emerging companies and acts as a trusted counsel for clients in industries ranging from VC firms and family offices to natural foods and artificial intelligence. Shawn earned his BS in Accounting, Risk Management and Insurance from the University of Wisconsin and his JD from the University of Colorado.
