About Gere

Experienced entrepreneur and "big picture" thinker and strategist. Founder and president at digital marketing agency in Ohio. Very interested in pursuing a social enterprise, specifically in the areas of criminal justice reform or politics and government. Feel confident with product design & management, pitch, sales & marketing. Lack technical capabilities but have enough knowledge of web to speak tech and understand technical concepts, barriers, and opportunities.

Seeking technical co-founder and others passionate about reforming systemic issues limiting the progress of American society. Healthcare, activism, elections/democracy, criminal justice system, addiction, and education are all areas of interest.

I like to think of what's wrong at the core and whether we can live with it or not, and recently I've been troubled with society's trajectory. We're making so many advances and there's so much positive out there, but I can't help feel that we're leaving too many people behind and neglecting monumental issues that will ultimately impede or destroy our progress. We must acknowledge which circumstances are unacceptable and set about changing them. There can be no excuses for not addressing areas we know are fundamentally flawed (criminal justice system). Yes, challenges are great, but if we know the situation is unacceptable, then no barrier is too great. It must be addressed.

Quote

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
