About Bryon

I have seven years experience in project management, both as an entrepreneur going from 0 to 1 and as a corporate professional in the retail industry. Most recently served as CEO of seed-funded technology startup I co-founded in Bay Area.

I am a passionate team-player that knows the power of "people" and "perseverance" behind any successful venture. I'm looking to meet and possibly collaborate with engineers and sales folks interested in exchanging ideas.My background is in travel technology, retail technology, content marketing, UI/design, go-to-market strategy, SaaS BD, inventory management (apparel), and lots more. I generally love art and architecture.

My favorite startups tend to be marketplaces that extend the use of existing things (ie; Airbnb enabling hosts to do more with their homes, Lyft enabling car-owners to serve riders, WeWork/Crossiant shared/co-working office spaces).
