Our Team

We are a group of experienced and innovative tech and media entrepreneurs. We know in our bones how important innovation is to our future.  

With decades of media experience we’ve done it all — bootstrapped our way to success, pivoted on a dime, pitched and secured venture capital, completed several successful exits, built audiences in the hundreds of thousands, and yes, we also learned valuable lessons through failure.

Our team is also well entrenched in Flyover Country. We have spent most of our lives in the Midwest and know journalists in the cities we cover. We also know the stories you want to tell because we’ve experienced it firsthand.
