I cover emerging and growing tech companies outside of Silicon Valley. Within the last decade, I’ve played most positions in the great game of business. In addition to helping high-profile companies grow and scale, I started several of my own, including Powderkeg—a network of local communities with global reach for tech entrepreneurs, investors, and top talent. I regularly uncover evidence that you don’t have to be in Silicon Valley—or even a big city, for that matter—to build something meaningful. In fact, most of our members don’t even live on the coasts. Our companies have gone on to successful exits and have been featured in Companies To Watch, Inc 500, and Best Places to Work lists around the world. You can join the Powderkeg community and get our latest interviews at powderkeg.com.
