Startup Grind is known as a community convener, bringing like-minded yet diverse individuals together to connect, learn, teach, help, build, & belong, but sometimes we directors also collaborate as innovators. Tune in to hear how 3 far-flung directors from Australia, Mexico, & New York connected over innovation: Sean & Martin connected to bring TimeChi to life & Patrice bought in on Indiegogo.
Martin Moscosa is the director from Guadalajara, Mexico, Sean Greenhalgh is a co-director from Sydney, Australia, although he spends a lot of time in Hong Kong, and Patrice Perkins is the Capital Region NY, USA director.
