Our Practice Pitch Breakfast is not a competition. It is a time for entrepreneurs and investors to fellowship, learn from each other and build relationships with one another no matter where we are located. We come in as strangers and leave as family.

I am the CEO of Scaling Point and the Founder of Gregslist. I currently live in the Dallas area and I am also active in the Phoenix and Dallas tech communities currently. Scaling Point is my consulting company where I work with savvy tech founders and their teams on positioning, product-market fit, messaging and marketing plans. I help promising startups scale up faster. I have worked with over 100 software and tech companies as a marketing strategy consultant and advisor. In my 30 year career in the software business, I was fortunate to be part of the startup and growth stages of three great companies that have since created over $1 billion in total revenue in the CRM software industry.
