Startup Grind Denver Hosts Patrick Quinlan, CEO (Convercent)


Patrick Quinlan, CEO, Convercent

Most recently Patrick served as CEO of Rivet Software, which in two years he took from $240,000 to $12 million in quarterly revenue–an increase that earned the company #60 overall placement on the 2011 Inc. 500 List, and #6 among software companies. A founding partner of Nebbiolo Ventures alongside Barclay Friesen and Philip Winterburn, he has also been the CEO of ServiceSelect and Delta Translation which was successfully sold to LFI in 1999. Patrick has been recognized by the Denver Business Journal as one of Denver’s top “Forty Under 40” leaders as well as an Ernst & Young 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year finalist. He is a board member of Young Americans Bank, the world’s only FDIC-insured bank designed specifically for young people. While Patrick typically moves at high speeds, he still takes time to savor what matters most–friends, family and good food. He frequents Denver’s restaurants, often with his registered therapy dog, Jasmine, by his side. He dreams of racing cars. - See more at:
