What I do
I am an entrepreneur, a mentor for impact focused startups and an investor focused on companies with diverse founders.
What I care about
As a mentor, I have worked with a number of small to midsized impact companies to develop disruptive, strategic "competitive response" plans aimed at industries dominated by large "arrogant incumbents".
As a lecturer I concentrate on entrepreneurship, fundraising, disruptive strategies and creating advantage from regulatory barriers.
As an investor, I focus on Pre-Seed, Seed and Series A investments into companies with diverse ownership (an emphasis on women founders/ownership) and have an "impact" mission.
How I connect to the D^3 Mission
D^3's StartUp Foundry will unlock incredible technologies at a time when the world needs them most. It is imperative that we provide as much depth and breadth of support as possible to these entrepreneurial endeavors. I hope to bring a lifetime of entrepreneurial experience to the organization to help ensure the highest level of success for all who enter the foundry.
