Mr. Mid-Career Entrepreneur

About Me:

Engineering undergrad (2004) turned Management Consulting Analyst (2005-2007) turned Entrepreneur (2007-present). Cofounded 2 tech startups, both successfully exited to larger media and data companies. Spent 5 years in a global Product leadership role at a Fortune 1000. Have since been a President/COO in the CPG space, but itching to learn.

Big Life Wins:

Have built 3 companies from scratch, including raising venture capital, building team, product development and commercialization, and successfully exited 2 of them to larger public and private companies generating handsome investor returns. Perhaps a bigger win? The lessons I learned putting startup #2 to bed! Failure sure is a learning opp.

Post MBA Goal:

Continue growing in Product and Ops leadership roles in larger and/or more interesting companies. I believe I largely have the skillset to do this, but also understand there’s always room for improvement and to fill in knowledge gaps, and in my current role and industry I have the bandwidth to pursue graduate education part-time.
