First time founder
I have over 15 years of business development/finance/operational experience. During that time I have closed accounts, developed/executed business development campaigns, lead pitches, and sourced strategic partnerships. While most of my experience has been with alternative investment funds, technology providers, and asset managers, I have over 5 years of experience working in financial technology. A few years ago I worked for a social media startup helping them sign clients, gain market exposure, and build their brand. Currently I lead business development efforts at a data SaaS provider.
I consider myself a natural business development person, a skilled communicator with a head for strategy. I am smart, dedicated, hard working, creative, and not afraid to "rip the band aid off" to get something done or make a process work better. At the same time I am very easy going, witty, a person that challenges my co-workers to be better while making them laugh. I have a considerable network of professionals in all types of industries and I think that is reflective of the type of person I am.
What I love is music, travel, sports, nightlife, yoga, history, and just having a few laughs with good people. I am always looking to learn new stuff, try new things.
Looking for someone that has technology/coding/programming expertise and is interested in starting or expanding a business. Ideally you are someone who is intelligent, passionate, creative, and committed. A team player that can not only get the job done but can think strategically and build a fantastic product while contributing to a fun yet hard working company culture.
The current idea that I am interested in doing is building a consumer facing app which helps the every day person. That being said, with the right partner(s) we could potentially offer quite a bit more. I am also open to other startup ideas in the tech/media/commerce/financial sectors.
Thank you for reading my profile, and I hope to hear from you.
Best of luck!
