Author, Professor, CFO for early stage ventures

I love entrepreneurs and working in entrepreneurial environments. I've written over 50 business plans, created pitch decks and developed financial models for ventures across multiple industries which have helped raise over $100 million in funding. Through this experience, I have gained a strong understanding of what investors look for when making a decision and the types of questions that must be addressed in order to secure funding. My experience is not limited to consulting. I've helped start 14 companies, one of which was a finalist in the TechCrunch disrupt competition, four have exited. I hold an MBA in finance from Thunderbird School of Global Management -- ranked #1 in the world for Global Business. And I have used my experience to help others as a Professor of Entrepreneurship to Master's-degree candidates. I also volunteer my time as a mentor to startup entrepreneurs at two accelerator programs. I have been a published author since 2001. This includes having collaborated on three books on entrepreneurship, one of which sells over 1 million copies and another that President Bill Clinton wrote the forward to. I enjoy working for clients that want to have a major impact on the world. ABOUT MY WORK My work has been profiled in The Washington Post and Investor's Business Daily. Additionally, my client work has been the subject of an episode on The Simpson's and featured in a song by a Platinum-award winning country music artist. Clients that I have advised include the following industries: Alcohol, Cannabis, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Retail, AR/VR, mobile, gaming, construction, agriculture, social networking, data security, consumer food products, entertainment and enterprise resource planning.
