Design is the approach I take with my work. Events and projects are the ways that, over the past 22 years, I have engaged the startup, running, and robotics spaces.
Phew! 2010 I attended Startup Weekend Indianapolis; had a blast, moved to Boulder, Colorado for summer 2011. I wanted to experience a place where such a cool event could be born. Since then, I have volunteered, organized, participated in, facilitated, and advised all of the programs. I love the camaraderie.
It's a core 1/3 of my identity; so, it's helped me shape my understanding of the startup world.
Read interviews with more of our amazing Community Leaders and learn how their tireless efforts are growing startup communities all over the world.
Entrepreneurship is the foundation of how I think and act; it's what I found myself doing when reflecting on what I do.
Advising programs, mentoring programs, mentoring founders, teaching ESHIP, and helping encourage more communities, founders, and innovators to take the next step in their journey.
My community of ecosystem builders throughout Indiana, the U.S.A., and globally are making the long slow shift to entrepreneurial economic development shorter and faster.
