This morning, The Oregonian is reporting that Nat Parker, cofounder of Portland startup GlobeSherpa which was acquired by Daimler, is joining Elevate Capital as an entrepreneur in residence. [UPDATE: And I just caught Malia’s post on it, too.] But there’s eine kleine twist.
Nat Parker, the Portland entrepreneur who helped start the mobile transit ticketing service GlobeSherpa, is moving to Berlin while his German wife awaits a green card. But from the other side of the world Parker said he will continue mentoring Oregon startups as entrepreneur-in-residence at the Portland investment firm Elevate Capital.
“Nat is an incredible entrepreneur who combines a high level of passion and drive with the ability to learn quickly and motivate teams around difficult tasks,” Nitin Rai, Managing Director of Elevate Capital, said in a written statement. “We are proud to support him in his next company and excited to see wheat he comes up with next.”
