About Keegan

I'm new to Denver from Upstate NY. In NY, I was heavily involved in the startup ecosystem. I've started 3 small companies, been involved with aspects of fundraising, business development, program management, operations and process improvement, and pitch development to name a few. I've also hosted & organized 2 Startup Weekends and been a judge for several startup pitch competitions, having judged and critiqued hundreds of pitches.

I hate to label myself as strictly business development because I have a very diverse background, understand a decent amount on back and front-end development, and consider myself a jack of all trades. Because of this, I fit best as a non-technical co-founder or early hire to help ease the workload of startup CEOs. I am capable of developing key product partnerships, helping with fundraising efforts, mapping out a branding strategy, handling operations such as working with manufacturers or managing an agile product team. I'm a hustler and believe that with the right team and a strong belief in the product, we can do great things.
