Hi, I'm Steve Schlafman. Just about everyone calls me Schlaf.
I'm a professional certified coach, angel investor, facilitator, speaker, former operator and recovering VC. I'm also a devoted husband and father.
The next phase of my life is dedicated to helping founders bring their wildest visions to life and evolve into extraordinary leaders.
I currently operate High Output, a boutique leadership development company based in NYC. I partner with founders to help them perform at higher levels, lead more authentically and build resilient organizations. This is my life's work.
Throughout my career, I’ve held a mix of investing and operating roles at Primary Venture Partners, Lerer Hippeau Ventures, RRE Ventures, The Kraft Group / The New England Patriots, Microsoft, Stickybits / Turntable.fm, and Massive.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, meditating, reading, riding my bike, cooking, watching the Patriots, listening to music, and enjoying time in nature.
I split time between Manhattan and the Catskills.
