How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am interested in two sets of co-founders.

1. I am seeking co-founders in incubators and accelerators that need a seasoned marketing expert to help their startup gain traction in the marketplace using social media, PR, CRM tools, email marketing and trade show event marketing campaigns.

2. I am seeking co-founders that want to launch equity crowdfunding platforms in order to the tap a $300 billion to $1 trillion industry that will reshape the banking and financial technology marketplace.

As an Advisor

My style is to harness proven, time-tested marketing strategies to build product/service sales and distribution channels through the use of social media, PR, and marketing campaigns for new startups that are seeking to grow their marketshare awareness and increase their revenue and marketplace traction.
