Services & Approach
I help early-stage companies find traction and accelerate growth.
My approach is rooted in market discovery insights, business model design, full stack growth strategies, and rapid product development & learning approaches.
I work with one company at a time, where I collaborate with C-level execs to identify the areas of highest risk and most leverage and then help teams to:
Uncover and validate unique market opportunities
Design defensible technology and business model advantages
Craft remarkable, resonant customer experiences
Build scalable organizations
Create cultures that inspire employee engagement and attachment
Raise capital from aligned investors
Navigate pressures and personalities from boards and other interested parties
Align stakeholder interests
I’m a seasoned and successful entrepreneur who’s been building technology businesses for 20 years. In that time, I’ve built three companies, including one with a successful exit, and the most recent with more than $25m+ in revenue that continues to thrive and grow rapidly today. I’ve advised scores of other companies and founders.
My experience gives me a unique perspective on the multiple dimensions of alignment that make for a successful and fulfilling venture: product/market fit, company/founder fit, and investor/company fit.
I started my professional life as a social worker, then was drawn into software development where I found stimulating intellectual challenge and abundant creative expression.
As an entrepreneur, I’ve looked for opportunities to join those two animating forces of technology and social impact. Working for purpose is deeply important to me, and I give preference to impact-oriented projects.
