I studied as an engineering with a focus in hardware and software. I have both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I developed software and hardware for a living until I realized that my true passion was in business development. I made the jump from my then quite cushy job as an engineer at an established and large company to business development at a young startup and never looked back. As I grew into my biz dev role, the company grew along with me. I gained experienced in the early days when we were just a few employees, through multiple fundraising rounds and a merger to a company that is now generating significant revenue. I worked with some fantastic business minds who really helped me learn, adapt and hone the critical thinking that I grew up with in engineering to my new found love for business development. This first startup was a great experience in helping to grow a company and its culture.
