Key Accomplishments



Before deciding to join Novatel Wireless, I ran a consulting firm that provided strategy and execution to early-stage startups with a focus on product, customer acquisition, and UX. I also run UXNY, one of NYC's largest User Experience organizations. Previously, I led the team that built all of Bon Jovi's web properties and co-founded Flywheel (formerly known as Cabulous), the most popular taxi app in San Francisco in beyond. Though I left after two years, Flywheel currently has over 40 employees and has raised $25MM from Shasta Ventures and others.

Beyond my day-to-day work, I'm also involved in the NYC creative/startup community through Orbital Bootcamp, where I'm an instructor. I also occasionally do hackathons and won Foursquare Global last year with In my spare time, I'm usually writing, making futile attempts to annihilate my email inbox, and doing karaoke. I'm also fascinated by transhumanism, life extension, and behavioral psych.

Think Tal is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Marianne Bellotti
We worked together
Tal is an extremely good networker. She's knowledgeable and well connect on both coasts of the tech scene, and can set up the meetings that ... make a real difference in a startup's early days. She's also very good with operations, keeping people on track and organized.
Lucas Nelson
We worked together
Tal has been a founder in the past (Cabulous) and won more than her share of hackathons. She has a great analytical head on her shoulders. I ... 'd work with her again in a heartbeat.

John Wolpert
We worked together
John has already proved himself as a great entrepreneur. As my co-founder at Flywheel and eventually as CEO, he ran the company brilliantly ... and is responsible for much of its current success. Beyond being as hard-working and sharp as other great entrepreneurs I know, John has a thoughtfulness and compassion for customers that differentiates him from everyone else I know. And it works. He is able to garner sincere loyalty from both his employees and his customers.
