Co-Founder (Los Angeles) at Startup Foundation

July 2011 - February 2012

Accelerating Startup Ecosystems With the help of a grant from the Kauffman Foundation, we launched the Startup Foundation to support our hypothesis for how entrepreneurs go from the "I have an idea!" phase along the path to "high growth" company. Upon launching in Los Angeles, I discovered and analyzed the elements that contribute to existing startup communities. I connected people (ecosystem stakeholders) to each other, I created new programs to support the community and helped magnify the best programs that already existed. While the Startup Foundation has been resigned as an official organization and the findings now wrapped into the parent, Startup Weekend, I continue to serve as a guide and resource to help new and existing entrepreneurs navigate this ecosystem more efficiently.
