As Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Innovation Refunds, I’m intensely focused on identifying digitally under-indexed categories that can be disrupted by emerging technology, and fuel economic growth. Leveraging my experience in both founding startups and driving growth for multinational corporations, my focus is now on connecting small businesses and fellow entrepreneurs with the financial tools and knowledge they need to kindle innovation and drive pre- and post-IPO business growth. I’m actively motivated by the pursuit of knowledge through ongoing education and have studied across the globe, having both lived and studied in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. I seek inspiration from both nature and the written word, so when I’m not on the hunt for the next under-indexed category in need of disruption, you can find me either buried in a book (Sapiens and The Lessons of History are a couple of my recent favorites), on the water surfing, or in the mountains hiking.
