Richard Stewart
We worked together  •  Director of Operations, SNUPI Technologies, Inc.. Previously Vice President of Operations, JeNu Biosciences, Inc..
Richard, like any great advisor and entrepreneur, has applied and refined his operational approach to start ups over and over again. With h ... is broad experience gained through several start ups he also has a vast tool kit to deploy. In almost any situation he can say with authority, "I've been there, and this is how we solved that problem." This especially applies to some of the less glamorous aspects of running a small organization. Being an entrepreneur leading a start up is battle, and when you go to battle, bring Richard on your team.
