Have you had any memorable connections at Venture Café Phoenix? If so, please tell us how you met them, who they are and how they have impacted you and your organization?
I make meaningful connections every week I’m there! To name a few, Melissa Lamson first gave me the opportunity to sell my art at Thursday night gatherings. Patti DuBois has become an invaluable business mentor, and Alex Koupal has given me a spot at BioPreneur nights. The judges from the November 2023 Big Pitch Competition, Amy Diaz, Wiley Larsen, Lauren Dunning, and Bob DeLean, continue to offer their support and raise awareness around my work.
Every person who engages with my art, whether it’s to start a conversation, browse, or buy, has an impact. I’m grateful for the interest and interaction with everyone I meet at Venture Café.

Tell us a little more about your current role with your organization and how it has impacted the start-up ecosystem here in the greater Phoenix region.
