Chief Operating Officer
Robb Lippitt is a serial entrepreneur, most recently the Founder of Secret Sauce Capital, an early stage venture capital and consulting company. Before that he was the CEO of Revolution Dancewear, a private equity backed manufacturer and distributer of dancewear. Robb also founded, consulted with, and otherwise annoyed a variety of other start-ups after finishing his 6+ year learning and growth opportunity as the COO/General Counsel of ePrize (now called Hello World). Pretty much everyone told Robb that leaving his business law partnership (after 8 years of practice), to go into an Internet start-up in 2000 was crazy. While they were probably right, Robb couldn’t resist the lure of giving lots of free stuff away to strangers. Robb also serves on the Boards of a variety of private companies which alternately welcome and dread his input, depending on the day.
Robb has been inexplicably tolerated by his endlessly patient and saint-like wife, and two amazing adult daughters. Robb is a zealous alumnus of The University of Michigan (B.A. 1990) and also a very proud graduate of the Wayne State University Law School (J.D. 1993).
Robb spends a great deal of time engaged in community service activities serving on the Boards of multiple not-for-profit organizations, travels as often as possible to far-flung corners of the world in search of ever more exotic foods to eat, loves to cook, and can recite The Princess Bride by heart. He sleeps little.
