FinTank is an incubator that helps startups partner with the larger global FinTech community. We recruit innovative startups, work with sponsors, and provide investors with first look and deal flow opportunities. Basically, if you’re into FinTech you should be in the FinTank.
I work with entrepreneurs and startup companies to help them build business strategies. I also work with business incubators and accelerators to help them design and build education and mentoring programs to help the companies in them be more successful.
I led the startup efforts for 1000 Angels in Chicago and manage the ongoing operations. 1000 Angels is the world’s largest digital-first, invitation-only investor network that allows members to build a venture portfolio free of management fees, earned interest, or large capital commitments. I work with startup companies to identify appropriateness for inclusion in the 1000 Angels offerings and with accredited investors to make them aware of opportunities that are available so they can create their own venture portfolios from a constantly updated selection of high quality, exclusive investment opportunities in some of the most exciting high-growth, early-stage companies in the world. I develop, manage, and coordinate access to private founder presentations, member networking events, educational seminars, and VIP access to conferences and events for all members. These include providing access to advisory board and board of director roles where there is a fit.
Helped design and on an ongoing basis continue to refine the Patient Safety Leadership Program. Teach courses that include; Healthcare Leadership, Economic Policy and Evaluation, and Creating Human and Systems Change. Work with other faculty members and the program director to enhance the program to meet the needs of the rapidly changing healthcare environment. Advise and coach students on their career direction and research projects. Ranked as one of the top instructors and advisers in the program.
