Scott McGregor
Advisor, startup coach, entrepreneur. Founder SOUNDFIT/3DWARES. Silicon Valley Director, POINTGREEN BUSINESS. Carnegie Mellon grad.
Espen is a great orchestrator of high tech, leading edge talent. He is a thoughtful, organized start-up CEO who does a great job of coordina ... ting all the internal activities of a fast growing manufacturing company, as well as external activities that develop the overall ecosystem. He is also well aware that the growth of the industry as a whole is driving company growth, and both are tied to the ability of users to solve complex problems that span using many products from a fragmented ecosystem of multiple start up companies. To ensure his customer's success, Espen has forged industry partnerships among several of these companies, forming a verticalized 3D manufacturing hub. This organization is fostering a level of integrated vertical collaboration that simplifies and enhances user experiences because all the products that a user needs to work with to solve their complex problems work well together. The customer gets the benefits of vertical integration of a large company, but from a vital ecosystem of small startups. Thus the customer, the industry and each of the participating startups is more successful. Herding cats to accomplish that organization among start-ups is a super difficult challenge but Espen manages it with aplomb without losing a beat in keeping his own company growing at a breakneck speed. He's the quintessential networking collaborative founder that an organization like Founder Dating needs as a mentor and advisor. Kudos!
