As a software developer throughout the boom and bust cycle I saw a lot of dubious ideas receive funding. So during my MBA I specialized in Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation. Then I furthered my studies by undertaking the CFA® Program.

Although I still haven’t started my own company I’ve worked on numerous business plans helping classmates, entrepreneurs and non-profits. I wrote some simple advice for starting a new venture while at Building Opportunities with Business. I even created some Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to help with business planning.

So if you have questions about starting and funding an entrepreneurial venture you should peruse this archive of blog posts below or you can send me a question using email or social media.
