Founder of ThriveTracker (Aquired 2017) - self-funded, non-technical solo founder, exited for multi-million $ cash deal. Crypto enthusiast. Wharton grad (Finance) with experience in private equity real estate.
I always find the shortest path to the goal, and I can tell you how to look at career advancement in a different light.
I'm originally a Wharton grad with a degree in finance. I worked at a multi-billion $ real estate PE fund out of college.
I saved that money and started http://thrivetracker.com, a globally distributed ad performance tracking system that routes and tracks hundreds of millions of clicks/day.
I wanted to take a break so I moved to Austin (tax reasons) last year to sell my company and exited last year for a multi-million cash-only deal.
I was a solo founder, non-technical, and had no outside investors whatsoever. How did I do it? I am an expert at solving problems, ANY problem. I'll either do it myself or I will find the 1 person on earth who can solve that problem if I have to.
I graduated with a finance degree from Wharton, the world's top finance school and spent years working at a multi-billion dollar private equity fund as an analyst and investment professional. I'm well versed in Excel and build my own models.
Tom is down to earth, very smart, have rich experience in business. Have delivered a lot of value on the call.
