He has been extremely helpful in refining our business focus while establishing a foundation that embraces our big vision.
Ron Karroll
They're my mentor  •  Co-Founder/CEO, Collabra Music. Previously Business Consultant (Regulatory Financial Reporting), Humana.
Tony has been “there” and that experience really shows through. He also is very interested in those he mentors in a way that I think is ... not typical. For example, in many cases he gives the advice he thinks is best as opposed to what may make him look best. As the director of an accelerator he often discusses the advantages of boot-strapping... Accelerators are generally ranked on how many of their companies get funded and by how much so this advice, which counteracts the typical director of an accelerator’s mandate, is comforting. Additionally, Tony is a genius when it comes to pricing structure as well as customer psychology. Every time I meet with him I come away inspired and with a thousand new ideas. I can’t recommend him enough.
