Through the Smith College CIEC I teach entrepreneurship and am a mentor/coach for Smith students participating in the Draper Competition. Talk to me if you want to bounce around your ideas for an enterprise or work on your pitch. I have almost thirty years experience as an "intrapreneur" - developing new products, customers, markets and businesses within a corporate structure. I have started three businesses and am a mentor and facilitator for early stage start-ups at Valley Venture Mentors - http://www.valleyventurementors.org.
Recently Paul Silva and I co-founded Launch413 with a group of highly-respected advisors. Our deep experience helps entrepreneurs set the right goals at the right times and provides the connections and expertise to execute. We help entrepreneurs get funding, generate and scale sales, connect to the partners they need to build and deliver their product, grow their team, and execute a strategy for growth.
