Bashkoff Enterprises is an entity for my investments and advisory services. I’m Rick Bashkoff and I do this in my spare time.

I am a partner in a consumer software outfit Archive Media, Inc. We are the makers of Gather – an easy-to-use web app for consolidating your personal photo and video library.

I’m fortunate to be a part of a resourceful media and tech network in NYC. I’ve held senior leadership positions at Howcast, one of the pioneers in educational content on the web and Zefr, a leading content targeting software company. I specialize in building long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships, particularly between small companies and larger enterprises.

I’m interested in companies at the intersection of the following industries:

  • Entertainment
  • Technology
  • Health
  • Education
  • Cannabusiness

Advisory services most often take the form of:

  • Creation of financial models, operating plans and business plans.
  • Subject matter expert for the technology and digital entertainment industries.
  • Participation in key discussions, business reviews and board meetings.
  • Active promotion and introductions.


I donate to and volunteer for causes I think are important including:

Feeding the Hungry
Men’s Health
Cures for Cancer, Lupus and Other Diseases
Access to Information & Knowledge

Here are some of the organizations I support.
