Alex Bendig
They're my friends  •  VP, Engineering, Startup Grind. Previously Co-founder, Connotations, Inc..
I worked with Steve first years ago and we have remained friends since. He's a thoughtful and honest leader with a strong sense for problem ... solving, productive company culture and quite simply: Making Things Happen. Steve has got a wealth of experience building technical products, managing teams and operating companies. His advice and mentoring is generally invaluable.

I've been working in startups for over a decade. I've seen many succeed but even more fail. I believe that failure is often the result of th ... e founder (s) not focused on the right things, the developer team over-promising or failing to ask the right questions or an overall lacking of communication between the business and technical teams. One of the best things a startup can do is hire a strategic advisor who can help navigate through some of the common startup issues and help guide the startup to success. Steve has a proven-track record working with startups and brings tremendous technical and management expertise, to the startup executive team. I'd recommend Steve to any tech startup that is trying to figure out what product or service to develop, how it will be built and how to deliver the right thing (s) at the right time (s). He is also great with mentoring executives and culture and team building.
