They're my friends
I've known Russ for over 15 years. We have been entrepreneurially focused since we met and have helped each other on several of our respecti ... ve startups. Russ is a highly creative and thoughtful guy. He is extremely well-read across many different subject areas and has a natural curiosity. I am looking forward to the day that he and I can collaborate on our next startup. He's one of my dearest friends and I reach out to him regularly for his counsel and insights.

Russ is brilliant beyond all expectations, which is necessary in any space. What makes him a great entrepreneur is that he is internally mot ... ivated to generate and execute ideas. Russ is willing to put himself and his ideas out there, back them up, and see there way through in a do-whatever-it-takes attitude.

We worked together
Russ has great vision and is incredibly intelligent. I would be honored to work with him again.

There is no doubt Russ would be/is a great entrepreneur. He's always on the cutting edge of trends, incredibly intelligent and is an uber co ... nnector, so if he doesn't know how to do something he can bring in a trusted third party to help on the project (one of the best characteristics of a great entrepreneur).

Ryan Koonce
We worked together
Ryan has a ton of great ideas, but what really sets him apart is that he knows exactly how to get them done. No one gets growth hacking bett ... er than he does, and since he's actually built companies with millions of users before, his credibility in growth and product management is unmatched.

Jason Hofsess
They're my friends
He has already built a profitable company in CitySolve, so he's proven he can build companies and teams, then recruit customers profitably.
