Tommy Knoll
We worked together  •  Managing Partner, The Werx Group. Previously Founder and President, Earthwerx.
Ted is a natural connector and would make a great entrepreneur. He is a master at connecting a large and at times fragmented group and dist ... illing the most important objectives and missions then achieving them. Ted is a creative problem solver that I find to be well grounded. Startup businesses and entrepreneurs in general tend to be high energy and sometimes have trouble focusing - Ted's 'centered-ness' would be an asset to any entrepreneur. I have been an entrepreneur for over 14 years and think Ted would be a great entrepreneur.
Alissa Sears

Honestly Ted is a great person with one of the largest networks in the LOHAS space in the world. He would be a great co-founder, I would kno ... w we were working on a startup as co-founders before another company hired him as their CEO.
Michelle Roark
They're my friends  •  2 x Olympian, Entrepreneur, Chemical Engineer, Public Speaker and Owner, Voila Salon/Spa Parfumerie.
Ted is smart, resourceful and a hard worker. He has also been an athlete which I think really helps entrepreneurs. Athletes know how to fa ... ll, learn from their mistakes and get back up and do better.
Tom Chi
They're my friends  •  CPO and Head of X, Factory. Previously Co-Founder, Mango Labs. Cornell grad.
Ted has deep experience working with executives and building strong relationships that would be incredibly helpful for startups that have bi ... g companies as clients, or would benefit from partnerships with big companies. He also has deep experience in innovation processes and working in ways that help innovation stick within an organization. This goes beyond the basics of project process into team and structural considerations that all contribute to a strong environment for innovative work. Lastly, Ted has a great attitude, is smart, and easy to collaborate with.

Tom Chi
They're my friends  •  CPO and Head of X, Factory. Previously Co-Founder, Mango Labs. Cornell grad.
Tom is one of the brightest guys I know. People like Tom are a rare breed who see big vision, understand nuances of engineering and detail, ... and communicate both without skipping a beat while being grounded and casual in conversation. No ego here. He is also a person who feels strongly about social impact and doing good in the world. Have a conversation with Tom is mind-blowing, inspiring and insightful. I would highly recommend him as an advisor to any startup.

His contacts seem endless and his attitude to others in giving advise is fantastic. I would highly recommend working with Anthony. You won't be sorry.
