About Valerie

Hi folks, I'm interested in connecting with potential co-founders in the areas of:
- Cleanweb
- Sharing economy
- Civic technology focused on sustainable urban systems (real estate, transportation, etc)
- Resource Recovery (recycling, byproduct exchange, industrial symbiosis)
- IT platforms for sustainability performance measurement

If you are working on a start-up in any of these (or related) topics, please be in touch with me. I would love to discuss the potential for the venture and how I could contribute. Likewise, I have a couple of ideas percolating, so let's talk.

My talents align most with long-range strategic planning, sustainable product/service design, sustainable business models, and market research. Thus an ideal co-founder would have complementary skills in finance, software engineering, or business development; however, drive and passion are the #1 irreplaceable trait! Ultimately, my goal is to help build an innovative business and dynamic team to scale sustainability to national/global levels. No small feat, right?

I have experience writing business plans and designing pitch decks, and I would be happy to share some of my previous work with you. I recently worked with colleagues to develop a business plan for a scalable green infrastructure maintenance service for local governments, which incorporated a workforce development component. We were selected for the Yale Venture Creation program.
