What type of entrepreneurship are you interested in?

Anything that actually enriches lives in some way. I love projects that involve a social aspect and bring people together while making them more effective in some capacity. The work has to be fun, though.

Have you started a company before? How many?

Yup. Mostly through Startup Weekend competitions, I've helped several projects get a start and continue to do advising / grunt work for a couple others.

What kind of events would you like us to host?

Competitions and social meetups of any kind.


I've worked with and helped found several startups, with focii ranging from educational software, recycling incentives, to portfolio services for software developers. Professionally, I design physical and digital products used in several countries.
