About Cody

I've written dozens of business plans, conducted extensive primary and secondary market research, financial analysis, statistical analysis, as well as start up pitches.

In the corporate world, I've worked with dozens of Fortune 500 businesses (E.g. AT&T, GE, Qualcomm, Samsung, Exxon, IEEE, Tiffany & Co., UPS, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, etc.) in brand strategy projects and have been deeply involved in data and analytics for the past 8 years from both a marketing, operations, and growth perspective (pricing, marketing, business case development, market research, risk identification, user engagement). As a result of this experience, I am quite skilled at analytics and understanding businesses, and work well with data scientists and can communicate consumer problems exceptionally well.

On my own, I have been an entrepreneur my entire life, and more recently have been involved in private label product importation and marketing alongside my day job working in strategy and analytics at a tech company that had a successful exit in 2015.

I understand what it takes to make a virtual or physical product successful.
