About George

I was lucky enough to be a poor immigrant growing up — it taught me responsibility and gratitude early on.
I dropped out of university to pursue entrepreneurship. Since then I've started 3 businesses, one of which failed pretty hard.

I've been working on Sprout for 1 year — I launched an MVP, completed an accelerator (and won people's choice award) and decided to pivot. What matters to me is that people contribute to each other and are empowered to do so. I am making it free and effortless, and need someone to sail this ship with me.
