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?

I started Eikon Labs to work alongside small to mid-sized businesses and the hard working founders in the startup ecosystem.

When I’m not consulting and building products, I actively support the Phoenix tech and startup community, including being a city lead for Faithtech Phoenix, Webflow Community leader, and an active board advisor to organizations like Per Scholas Phoenix and Radhash.

I’ve met so many incredible folks at Venture Café Phoenix! One of these being Sherri Barry, co-founder of FABRIC Incubator Tempe. It’s been awesome to learn about this resource in our local ecosystem and inspired some projects in the works with my mom, a professor of fashion design and textile merchandising.
