How I can help

My professional background

A technologist, entrepreneur, and maker with more than 30 years of leadership experience in multiple industries I have to date:

  • Advised well over one hundred company founders and leaders.
  • Founded, grew and exited an international enterprise software company.
  • Led turnaround of underperforming multinational manufacturing plants.
  • Led the development of award-winning software to optimize production line planning and scheduling for The Coca-Cola Company.

How to work with me

What I can offer

Building a successful company is one of the hardest projects you will ever undertake. I have built a technology company from the ground up, learned some hard lessons, and survived all sorts of forces that tried to kill my project along the way. I successfully sold my company a few years ago and am now giving back to the entrepreneurial ecosystem by helping founders navigate the full rollercoaster business building journey.

My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship

We have open, honest and candid communications. You are fully committed to your venture. As a mentor my role is to provide suggestions, thoughts, ideas, and advice on goals, activities, and progress. As a mentee, you drive the relationship. You ask for advice and feedback on the most important things your business needs to achieve in the short and long term and I will do my best to provide assistance where I can.

How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start

For a startup – I typically like to start with a conversation about the business they want to build. What is it – what’s your idea? Who’s it for? How did you come up this idea? What’s the hard part? Etc …

For an operating company. I like to start with a quick flyover of your company and industry followed by a discussion about what you believe is the most important thing your business needs to achieve in the next few weeks/months.

Those initial conversations inform and prioritize the questions that need answers and the logical next steps.
