About me: I'm lucky enough to build and launch things like tech companies, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, bio-medical devices, real estate projects, non-profits, and I'm the only person in the world to build/launch three independent incubators/accelerators.
I've consulted for some really cool startups, venture firms, and corporate venture programs including as the Founding Director of the Chobani Incubator, on the launch of the Mars Accelerator, plus working with ZX Ventures(Anheuser-Bush's venture + incubator arm), Pernod Ricard, Backstage Capital, Rubicon Venture Capital, and numerous independent startups.
I've played small parts in a few big missions: bringing to market new orphan drugs (including the first FDA-approved plant-derived cannabinoid medicine for childhood epilepsy), an intrathecal pain pump (for better patient care and reduced opiod misuse), and even a company that combats oil well accidents.
I've worked the full stack of launching companies: finance, operations, marketing, product, engineering, and investing.
I also love contributing to the startup/venture community by hosting events, sharing resources and sharing time with entrepreneurs from programs like Terra, HackCville, StartupHoyas, Zahn Innovation Center, Academy for Software Engineering, and the portfolio of Backstage Capital.
Recently I was the cofounder of Margin, a retail startup recently voted the #2 App of the Day on Product Hunt with investors including the co-founder of Gilt Groupe, the Chairperson Emeritus of the NRF, the creator of The Carlyle Group, and more.
Would love to hear from you on @sthoward.TAGS: FULL STACK STARTUP | STRATEGY | FINANCE | OPERATIONS | MARKETING | ENGINEERING
