About John

If you believe in the importance of creating a fairer and more equitable environment for people everywhere: In which personal style, age, race and gender no longer play a part in how opportunities accrue to people - then please read on!

My background: I'm an experienced sales & marketing executive with an MBA from Wharton/AGSM and 13 years of experience (the last 6-years of which I've spent at LinkedIn) in demand generation marketing and B2B sales (enterprise & mid market).

My idea: Through years of having conversations with enterprise customers in the HR space I've identified an opportunity to build a game changing HR Analytics product and am looking for a talented engineering cofounder to join on this journey. The product itself would likely require technical skills related to machine learning, natural language processing and AI.

What I bring to the table: I have deep existing customer relationships with C-suite HR buyers at enterprise companies, and the experience/ability to strategically scale a sales and marketing engine as soon as we get to MVP.

What I believe: People need products that make fair treatment at work (and in fact, everywhere else as well!) an expectation, not a privilege. Let's build something amazing and change the world!
