I thrive on transformation. And the best form of transformation is from an idea in someone’s head to an amazing product. I love advising startup founders, and have had the pleasure of being involved in launching or scaling multiple successful startups. I always end up describing myself as a startup evangelist but I realized something more. • I lead startup communities • I am obsessed with scalable business models • I love rolling up my sleeves up to help with Value Propositions, UX design, technical architecture, team building and all other aspects of a startup • I love helping entrepreneurs envision their ideas & path to market • I always ask the startups “why” & “why not” • I direct a handful of startups at any given time to work on unique ways to bring their products to market Having been an business owner for most of my career, and while having seen both the ups and downs of this world, I would not have it any other way!
