At Digital First Ventures, I was an Entrepreneur in Residence and helped incubate 2 startups. One of the startups involved providing data science to small and medium sized businesses and the other startup was a personalized couponing site. Previously, I was an Associate at TechStars where I helped 10 portfolio companies in all facets of early stage development from business development, creating investor decks, social media & email marketing, understanding data analytics, etc. Before that, I worked in Business Development at the Lean Startup Machine, founded my own startup, My Life Is Desi (reached over 4 million pageviews), and worked in Financial Services.
