Owner, Formidable Ventures
Don Weidner, Owner of Formidable Ventures, enjoys a turn-around project. As a kid, he fixed electronics. As an adult, he fixes businesses. He has turned money-losing properties into cashflow successes. He has renegotiated Fortune 500 supplier contracts saving millions. He has streamlined engineering and manufacturing process flows for the elite companies in tech. In 2005, he began making more money studying the stock market for two hours each night than he made working 10-14 hours per day for the Fortune 500. He now manages Formidable Ventures, an investment business, focusing on aggressive, exponential growth in technology. Industries of interest include artificial intelligence, robotics, photovoltaics, networks and sensors. In the past few years, Don has added private sector space to his repertoire. He is involved with Planetary Resources, BlueDot, and Space Angels Network.
