Think Parker is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Bill Bither
They're my advisor
Parker is one of the most driven and intelligent young entrepreneurs I know. He brings with him many tools needed to build a successful star ... tup, including intelligent perseverance, only lacking very technical programming experience. He is an amazing network builder, able to setup meetings and build relationships with very influential people. Parker knows how to utilize his network, and would make an excellent co-founder to a startup.
Scott Foster
They're my mentor  •  Mentor, MassChallenge and Co-Founder and Director, SPARK Coalition, Inc.. Yale grad.
Parker possesses the innate qualities that are essential to be a successful entrepreneur. He is constantly seeking and absorbing new inform ... ation. He has an internal energy level that I have witnessed in only a very few individuals. His ability to synthesize information and make an quick, yet thoughtful (and usually correct) decision means that very few opportunities pass him by. Simply put, being able to work with Parker is a joy.
Benjamin Wheeler
We worked together  •  Developer of eHighlighter on iOS. Was Algorithm developer, Hudson River Trading. Coder with a strong creative and visionary streak.
Parker has vision and focus, and gets things done. He's great at cutting to the chase and working on the most important thing first. Plus, h ... e's a fast learner and talented all over the place, eg at things he has no right being that good at, like visual design.
Scott Foster
Mentor, MassChallenge and Co-Founder and Director, SPARK Coalition, Inc.. Yale grad.
Parker gives more to each relationship than he takes - I can think of no higher compliment to give than that. He is constantly exploring ne ... w ideas and revisiting old ideas to test their value.
Delcie Bean
They're my friends  •  Founder & Board President, Tech Foundry, Inc. and Founder and CEO, U-Commission.
Parker is as successful as he is passionate and enthusiastic. His perspective is insightful, his feedback is helpful, and he doesn't waste t ... ime.
Daniel Lieberman
Founder, InCommN, LLC and Board member, Shelburne Falls Memorial Hall Association.
Parker Holcomb is a force of nature. He's brash, bright, intelligent, and never stops learning and finagling (I mean that in a good way).

Gaurav Panchal
We worked together
I worked closely together with Gaurav on a Startup Weekend project. The group started at seven people, and ended at 3/4. First and foremost ... he was one of the people who stuck with it. Dude is certainly driven to do something in startups. Skill wise he has the design skills and aesthetic necessary to contribute to a great product and team. Best, Parker

Benjamin Wheeler
Developer of eHighlighter on iOS. Was Algorithm developer, Hudson River Trading. Coder with a strong creative and visionary streak.
I've been closely working with freelancers, dev shops, and full time developers for years to meet my business and product needs. While not a ... n engineer myself, Ben excels at communication about the needs and strategies surrounding the product. His communication combined with clear technical ability makes him one of the most valuable individuals I have ever worked with.

Dede Wilson
They're my friends  •  President, Bakepedia and Author, The Harvard Common Press.
Dede can sell. Great at pitching and closing.
