About Josh

My name is Josh Sabol. I graduated ASU with dual Math and Business degrees in 2015, and then moved to San Francisco to get more involved in the tech scene. After two years launching products to market, I decided to jump full time into an idea that I’d been playing with for several months.

So far, I’ve built a high-fidelity, interactive prototype for user testing, and have gotten 4 customers signed up for the beta. Now, my #1 priority is meeting like-minded folks with a technical background and an interest in startups.

Let's meet!
