Gary believes entrepreneurs need to be at the epicenter of radical global economic development.
In 2009, Gary engineered the globally recognized event platform to empower entrepreneurs. Entrepreneur Week was an ongoing series of panels, keynotes, roundtables, and mentoring sessions focused on propelling early and growth-stage entrepreneurs to achieve their personal and professional goals. In just two years, Entrepreneur Week became a global ecosystem and scaled to four continents; curating more than 500 speakers who shared their stories with more than 6,000 entrepreneurs, a group responsible for more than $7 billion in revenue. The platform has been adopted by Stanford University, IBM, and many others.
In Gary's view of the world, communities grow rapidly only when entrepreneurship accelerates socio-economic progress through connection, innovation and knowledge-sharing. Currently, he is particularly focused on creating platforms and infrastructure to unlock the invisible and unrealized potential of business ecosystems.
Gary lives in Silicon Valley and resides on the Global Board of Directors for the Dell Center for Entrepreneurs and has been featured in industry-leading publications including the Harvard Business Review, Inc, and the New York Times.
