I am dedicated to supporting and enabling the flourishing of humanity in the 21st century.
I am an entrepreneur, strategist, philosopher, systems architect, mapmaker, life athlete and yogi.
My maps have led me to found technology companies, conduct original research in business management theory and write a variety of essays about the intersections between business, psychology, macroeconomics and philosophy.
I am committed to being an ever-developing multi-paradigmatic polymath.
Below are a variety of my skills and areas of expertise:[Lean Startup, Customer Development], [Evolutionary Developmental Systems Theory, Strategic Foresight, Singularitarianism, Accelerating Technological Change], [Developmental Psychology, Personality Systems, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Intersubjective dynamics], [Integral Theory, Vajrayana Buddhism, Trans-lineage Metatheory, Post-Metaphysical Spirituality, Cultural Evolution], [High Intensity Interval Training, Nutrition, Biohacking, Breakdancing, Energy Management, Getting Things Done].
I left Stanford in 2010 during my freshman year to found a company that produced the Startup Genome Project and a software product called Compass.
To date the Startup Genome has collected the world’s largest comprehensive dataset of high growth early stage technology startups and released 4 highly-regarded reports that have been read by over 1 Million people and covered in many national publications including WSJ, HBR & PBS, adopted into the curriculum of 100+ universities & startup accelerators and inspired numerous businesses and political initiatives.
Compass has developed technology that is essentially a “data refinery” or an “analyst in the cloud”: the user puts low value data in and gets high value data back. It is currently used by more than 30,000 CEOs worldwide.
I left the company in 2013 but continue to advise on strategy and work on special projects.
My Project / Work history is most accurately reflected on my LinkedIn Profile.
