Starting a company can be a high stakes affair. And the vast majority of startups collapse in the first 12-18 months.

Joshua Konowe is a highly successful and awarded entrepreneur with a history of building businesses from the ground up and driving value for both customers and investors.

Joshua is a judge at Georgetown University’s entrepreneurial MBA program, a mentor at the Founder Institute, and volunteers at the Children’s Science Center, a non-profit in Washington DC.
