Louis Goldner

Curtis Zimmerman
They're my friends  •  President, Curtis Zimmerman Group. Previously Founder and Owner, Zimmerman Productions, LLC.
John IS a great entrepreneur. He is always open-minded and willing to listen and advise on anyone's project. Due to his experience level, he ... is an excellent and valuable advisor and when he does not have the expertise, he very humbly admits that too and leads you to someone who does. He is real person and great connector. For example, when we attended SXSW together he made it a point to introduce me to the biggest tech experts and was sure that we attended the launch of Twitter, knowing it was going to be something huge. He is an early adopter, has a tenacious work ethic, is alway prepared and always on time. I have known John for over 10 years and witnessed him leave a very comfortable corporate position to pursue his incredibly successful entrepreneurial path. John is a strong leader and an asset to any entrepreneurial master mind.

He's also a great and giving mentor and advisor, who's as comfortable in the boardroom as he is in a coffee shop discussion with a startup team.
