I'm a seasoned entrepreneur and technology executive with a passion for startup building and fostering entrepreneurial communities. My entrepreneurial journey started during high school when I founded my first technology company, which we later sold when I was 24, leading me to relocate to Arizona. I have since called Arizona home.
In 2012, I assumed the CEO position at Coplex, where I currently serve as a Board Member and Managing Partner. Coplex has been instrumental in starting over 200 startups, building a diversified equity portfolio of over 60 companies, and becoming one of the largest Startup Studios in the US. We partner with enterprises to create technology startups and have been featured in Entrepreneur, Forbes, The Washington Post, VentureBeat, and Fast Company.
Beyond Coplex, I hold various board and advisory positions at thriving technology companies that I actively support. As a top-rated tech speaker, I have addressed thousands of CEOs across the country, and I also had a long-standing column with Entrepreneur Magazine, where I shared my insights on entrepreneurship, innovation, and corporate venturing.
