About Cole

I studied advertising at the University of Illinois. I am an excellent public speaker that knows how to generate consumer interest and excite prospective partners about a product. I am also particularly effective at using research and data to yield insightful analyses of the market. With this, I am able to visualize necessary development changes that allow a company to meaningfully reach the most impactful consumer. I also hold strong abilities in the realm of digital advertising and social media, which provide for greater efficiency in generating a strong following and devoted user base. But, my most distinguishing characteristic is my innate creative adeptness. With my creativity, I am not only capable of conceiving strategic solutions to difficult problems-- but am also able to realize great opportunity that stems from those very issues themselves.

Currently, I am in the early stages of developing a mobile app tailored to university students. I am looking for a technical co-founder that is not only able to understand and appreciate my vision, but can help me navigate the tech industry and execute challenging development tasks. An ideal co-founder should be proficient at mobile development, and have the aptitude to scale the technology in appropriation to business growth.
