About Adam

I have a broad experience in early stage startups. I have experience running operations for rapidly growing businesses, managing inventory in complex production and legal environments, raising capital, recruiting, HR, sales and marketing. I've participated in three university research-based startups, co-founded a national accelerator program, and co-founded two other companies (a Ruby app that I built and an online wine retailer). Currently, I run operations for a rapidly growing software consultancy with offices in Charlotte, DC, and San Francisco. I have a history of creating and executing strategic plans in high stress startup environments.

While working at Packard Place I co-founded a financial services focused startup accelerator.

Co-Founder & CEO

May 2014 - July 2016

Co-founded and led an e-commerce wine retailer. Sourced products from winemakers in Italy and brought about 1,000 bottles over to test the market. Found and worked with industry partners and mentors, managed a complex inventory and shipping system. Spent $25k to test the market and , after navigating the complex legal and regulatory environment, I decided to shut the business down until the laws change. Would love to discuss the experience over a glass of wine.
