John Biondi
We worked together  •  Founder, The Cider Farm, Inc.. Previously President and CEO, Xolve.

Adam Sutcliffe

Tom Parling

Adam is one of the finest minds of entrepreneurship I have had the pleasure of meeting. His real-world experience is boosted by a thorough a ... nd wide academic understanding. He has the answers (and the key points from both sides) to almost every business scenario I have experienced. You will do well to meet someone with a more in-depth knowledge.
Cory Cullinan
They're my school  •  CEO, Creative Director & Performing Artist, Doctor Noize Inc.. Previously Musician, Author & Owner, Pictoria Records & Books. Stanford grad.
Adam IS a great entrepreneur... or at least, in my experience, he has been an absolutely invaluable advisor to my entrepreneurial company. ... For many years, Adam has been THE key advisor to my company, Doctor Noize Inc. He has given me persuasive and crucial advice steering me in the right direction during many phases of my business, including: •The foundation of my startup •A large investment stake from a company in Hong Kong who approached Doctor Noize Inc. about investing in my company •Navigating many business twists and turns, including disagreements and negotiations with my partners/investors •Sound business decision-making advice •Managerial advice for me on managing those who work for me. I can honestly say that, in something like five years of being a primary advisor to Doctor Noize Inc., I cannot think of any advice Adam has given me that has steered me in the wrong direction. I trust his opinion on entrepreneurial and business matters so much, I rarely make a big decision without getting his two cents first. He is a brilliant guy whose kindness and generosity of spirit is even greater than his genius. Cory Cullinan
Spyridon-Edouard "Ross" Tsakas
We worked together  •  Founder & President, Eulysis UK Limited and Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Eulysis Limited.
Dr. Adam Bock is an exceptionally brilliant individual who combines high level entrepreneurial knowledge from both the practical and academi ... c perspectives. He is a highly accomplished entrepreneur in the life sciences and is equally accomplished in the academic world. He is always willing to lend a helping hand and his advice is consistently top notch. His tenacity and passion for entrepreneurship is rare and critically needed in a world of stagnating R&D. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Adam as a trusted business leader, advisor and professional.

Tom Parling
They're my advisor  •  Owner, Chief Executive, Ocere. Previously Head of SEO and PPC, Locations 4 Business.
Tom is engaging, bright, and driven. He's built his first business with sweat and grit. He knows his own strengths and is actively looking t ... o develop new skills. He understands the hard reality of starting and running a lean organization. Best of all, he can take criticism, learn from his mistakes, and keep a good sense of humor.

Spyridon-Edouard "Ross" Tsakas
They're my advisor  •  Founder & President, Eulysis UK Limited and Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Eulysis Limited.
Ross has numerous entrepreneurial strengths. He has the practical knowledge of small business management and start-up operations. He has the ... analytical capacity to tackle technical challenges even in unfamiliar operational or regulatory contexts. Finally, he brings to his work a social conscience that fuels innovative thinking about global entrepreneurial impact.
