About Kurt

My name is Kurt and I just returned to the Chicago area after completing my Masters in Finance and Management in England. My undergraduate degree was a double major in Finance and Entrepreneurship and I am from the Northern Chicagoland area (Glenview). I enjoy sports, working out, fishing, scuba diving, sailing and getting my startup off the ground.

I am looking for someone who is an experienced developer and understands programming, coding, databases and is comfortable wearing different hats. My startup involves the Cannabis Industry, internet/social and I'm looking for someone to work with who can share the same passion , excitement and forward progress on developing this startup.
