Executive Director of Startup Ignite, and startup activist & evangelist. Passionate about all things startup. I love working with founders to help them bring their ideas to market – problem solving with them, and doing things that “don’t scale” and figuring out what does.
a little about me
I thrive on transformation. And the best form of transformation is from an idea in someone’s head to an amazing business. I love advising startup founders, and have had the pleasure of being involved in launching or scaling multiple successful startups. I founded Startups Ignite under the strong belief that a strong startup ecosystem must be championed by strong entrepreneurs, and supported by collaborative organizations. It's been a ride, but we are strong, and we are growing. Thank you for being a part of the journey.
WHAT I LOVE
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
I love helping startup founders figure out their why + I am single-mindedly focused on this region's startup ecosytem.
