How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

The Hustler. I have done (and can do) everything that doesn't involve coding or Quickbooks: brand development, go-to-market strategy, complex enterprise sales, content curation, through to hiring and firing at the early stage. I have very strong networks in the Boston/NYC area and could, with the right idea and founding team, find seed funding fairly quickly.
