Shiny

image

Shiny is a marketplace for fractional executives and startup founders to connect.

I bootstrapped Shiny on my own from February 2020 until April 2021 under the name SiliconCFO, at which point my Co-founder/CTO, Daniel Cipoletti, joined me on the journey.

In August 2021 we launched the first version of our platform. After going through the ODX accelerator in 2022 we’re continuing to grow and get fractional executives hired at great startups.

Warming Up to Climate Tech

image

Currently exploring options for getting back into climate tech.

Some background:

My passion has always been for climate tech and sustainability. As a freshman in high school, I was building solar panels from scratch, and as a freshman in college, I helped start a wind turbine startup.

Since then, I’ve gotten invaluable experience operating, growing, and investing in startups outside of climate tech.

Now, I’m writing about the climate tech industry in a substack called Warming Up to Climate Tech.

Consulting

When I’m able to support a startup in a high-impact way, I will consult with them for a short period of time.

I’ve consulted for a wide variety of startups doing fractional CFO work, operations consulting, M&A support, and startup advisory.
