Pam Boney, Founder
We worked together  •  Founder and Principle Partner, Tilt365.com & Expert in Personality Evolution for Startups, High-growth companies and ExO companies.
Justin is one of our investors and advisors at Tilt365. We were searching for the right firm to build the web app based on our science and i ... nterviewed numerous firms in Raleigh/Durham. The company Justin founded (Relevance) was by far the best and we would not have such an awesome app today if not for the decision to partner with his company. Justin eventually invested in our startup and has been an advisor ever since. His company merged with Cognitect, which was a big pivot move for them. He definitely has the grit for risk-taking and innovative thinking. Despite the business pivot (which makes us less strategically a fit for them) Justin and his awesome team still advise, consult and code for us when we need to do some heavy lifting. The entire team is top notch talent, in addition to being good people. He has helped me feel better about mistakes and helped me avert others, so I have come to trust his perspective in big ways. He would make a great advisor.mentor to any entrepreneur or startup team.
