Anum Valliani – Organizer/Venues
A fan of both tech-based startups and big corporate innovation, Anum balances her role as an Offering Manager for IBM with co-founding FreeBeer.ai, a nationwide service that aims to use artificial intelligence to link people to events they care about that also happen to have free booze.
Anum moved to Boston from Texas after a stint in TV reporting and consulting. She definitely misses the tacos and barbecue down south. Luckily, the mountains and beaches make up for it!
Kristine Ravenscroft – Organizer/ Volunteers
Kris is excited to have been an integral part of the successful acquisition of her last endeavor and is now venturing out on her own as the CEO and founder of Beauty Gourmet, an edible beauty products company. Having battled nutrient deficiencies her whole life, she believes beauty nutrients are the key to looking and feeling our best and is on a mission to make them a tasty and effortless part of every woman’s daily life.
Chad Jones – Supporter Network
As a socially conscious “agent of change”, Chad Jones utilizes his skills as an entrepreneur, thought leader and venture investor to take unique ideas from inception through execution for startups and F50 companies alike. Guiding effective and profitable outcomes – including six exits to companies such as Microsoft, VMware and Intel – Chad continues to pursue his vision of achieving a better world through non-intuitive technology use and entrepreneurship.
Chad splits his time as a board member, operational executive and mentor across a wide spectrum of companies. Before his current position of CEO at Plesso Ventures, Inc., he held positions of Chief Strategy Officer at Deep Information Systems, VP of Internet of Things Strategy at LogMeIn, Strategy and PM for DynamicOps (acquired by VMWare) and VP Product Management with Neocleus (acquired by Intel).
