Startup Grind Princeton
I've been doing startups since long before they were cool. My passions include startups, data science, and coffee.
My latest venture, Board++ breaks glass ceilings, diversifies startup boards, and develops our next generation of leaders by placing corporate executives from underrepresented groups on startup boards. I founded the Startup Grind Princeton chapter in 2014 and live in downtown Princeton.
