Julian Gay
We worked together  •  Co-founder and CEO, Xendo, Inc.. Previously Senior Product Manager - Group Strategy and Development, Orange. Cambridge grad.
Bosco exudes positive energy. He's a risk-taker, innovator and leader. Before becoming a White House Presidential Fellow, he was one of ... the main organizers of the San Francisco Ruby meetup and has deep technical chops with a broad network of tech talent to boot. Highly recommended.
Mahama Nyankamawu
We worked together  •  Project Manager, MWH Global and Co-Founder Novaya Solar, 2012 10th Annual ISBC. Georgia Institute of Technology grad.
Bosco has been a great advisor and mentor for almost a year now. His feedback and suggestions are helping us save a lot of money in the deve ... lopment of our software platform. He is an active listener and always provides insightful suggestions. Any entrepreneur or founder would be lucky to have him as an advisor. Great person to bounce ideas off.

Bosco's skills are as unique and awesome as his name. It has been a pleasure to work with him for the past two years. Bosco has deep experti ... se, is extremely personable, and sees breakthrough solutions where others see impenetrable walls. Bosco and I worked together to run the world's first Solar Hackathon and he has advised many of the solar software startups Powerhouse has invested in. He's a powerhouse in his own right.
