My passion is mentoring, advising, and funding tech and biotech startups. I have engaged with 200+ startups, at all stages, from concept to exit.
There are always two assumptions for any startup. I will share with you the two assumptions and how to validate them.
Some say 4-8 second, I say 2-3 seconds. That's how much time you have to capture the attention of your target audience once they land on your site. Learn how.
Tom opens doors – to opportunity, partnership and collaboration. As the biz dev director at Agency.com, he put the agency in front of many Fortune 500 clients, as well as exciting emerging clients. He told our story with great enthusiasm and confidence that was matched by his intuitive and experienced sense of what made C-level marketing execs tick. Tom always positioned us for success in the best possible light.
Tom is a creative marketer and an expert with detailed knowledge of online publishing. I have had the opportunity to work with him as a consultant and as a colleague when he was at Agency.com. At every turn, Tom works hard to collaborate with colleagues, drive new business and find ways to increase revenue. I certainly appreciate working with Tom and look forward to our continued collaboration.
Tom not only sets a high standard for those he works with, but he also follows-up with all on the project. Why is that important? He's able to get more from an agency and a team.
Additionally, Tom asks the right questions; he examines the situation from multiple angles - looking for a deep understanding to ensure that the solution fits the problem.
Tom is a great leader and motivator. He understands the strengths of his team and provides the guidance to bring the best out of each individual. As vast as the technical persona and creative persona are, Tom's ability to relate on an individual level with everyone is what allows him to rally a team together to reach a common goal. I am happy to have worked with Tom and recommend his leadership and managerial skills to any organization needing to achieve greater team and ultimately financial success.
We outsourced our marketing work to Tom, thinking we could get all the expertise of an experienced professional at a fraction of the cost (since we don't employ him full time). We expected a lot of him and he has exceeded our expectations. He is very savvy with technology and knows how to use it to drive results. I couldn't be more pleased with his work!!!
Tom, took me under his wing, as together, we opened the icrossing Chicago office. He shared his fantastic sales knowledge and time management discipline, helping our entire team become successful. He is a top notch professional with the ability, focus and entrepreneurial sprit to grow revenue, lead a team and improve a workplace culture. I hope to one day have the opportunity to work with Tom again
