I am a teacher, consultant, and researcher of business strategy, and entrepreneurship. I have 10+ years of consulting experience with clients ranging from Fortune 100 defense companies to Indian retailers, and technology startups.

My research focus is the association between capital providers (debt, equity, and non-traditional forms of financing e.g. crowdfunding) and startups/ innovation. More specifically, I investigate the capital provider and startup linkage in contexts ranging from S & P 500 companies to cryptocurrency, blockchain projects, and other early-stage ventures.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship at North Central College in Naperville, IL in the School of Business and Entrepreneurship.
