“I started Bodhi Venture Labs because after spending almost three decades working for some of the most successful companies on the planet, I knew what I had learned over those years needed to be shared. As a board advisor and member, I have also met numerous leaders who knew what they needed to do but lacked the knowledge and experience to make it happen" - Angus Norton, CEO and founder.

Angus is a Product Leader at heart and coined the term "full stack product manager" early in his career at Microsoft. What exactly is a full-stack leader? Full-stack leaders have the proven ability to look from left to right across the skills needed to run a business and have held senior roles across almost every aspect of building products and delivering business results.
Angus's approach centers on building high-performing teams, efficiently deploying resources, and developing robust customer-centric products that deliver value. He works with entrepreneurs to help them identify opportunities and develop strategies. He helps early to late-stage companies identify and solve the correct problems quickly and cost-effectively.
Angus's experience has taught him that all product teams need more than just a great product. Leaders sometimes need help designing the right mindset, structure, and processes for great products to develop into durable, sustained businesses. Angus's experience helps them develop their product strategy and go-to-market plan and build their teams for sustained delivery.
Angus believes that any founder can create a successful product or service with the proper guidance and assistance. Angus has an extensive network of corporate executives, venture capitalists, developers, and entrepreneurs in his network and loves to use it to facilitate growth and success. He is also a mentor at various accelerators, universities, and programs.
Aside from his work in the tech industry, Angus loves spending time with his family and racing motorcycles as often as time allows.
