"Michael was not only a great leader and visionary CEO, but he was also an amazing mentor and a great friend who relentlessly fought for social justice and equality. As an immigrant, a new intern and a LGBTQ individual, Michael empowered me to be an entrepreneur, challenged me to be a better leader, and inspired me to be a responsible activist.  He opened up a whole world of experience for me and my husband that would have otherwise never been possible."
