Utah Valley University, 2013

After ESTEEM, I connected with a small group of local investors with the idea of creating a subscription based airline connecting Chicago to South Bend. After implementing the tools I gained in ESTEEM, I invalidated the business model and we pivoted to flipping houses. Two years later I connected with the IDEA Center and am currently running the IDEA Center's Problem Validation team as Director of De-Risking.
