We worked together  •  Platform lead, CloudFlare, Inc.. Previously GM, MilSpecCoating.com, STIC-ADHESIVE Products Co.. Wharton grad. Harvard grad.
Bong applies empathy, analytical rigor and endless curiosity to understand the person he's talking with, and the problem they are solving fo ... r, in the context of whatever role he's filling. I've seen Bong in high-gear action in three different roles over the years: corporate development at large companies, startup CEO, and startup adviser. Bong is my first call for getting a friendly, firm analysis of organizational growth, outside partnerships, and funding for startups.
