Many admirable qualities are the norm in startup land: keen intelligence applied innovatively; drive and work ethic; calculated risk tolerance; and willingness to experiment and iterate. Ron possesses all these, and to a degree that ranks him among the best startup minds with whom I have had the pleasure to work. But what truly sets Ron apart is that he (1) couples all these attributes with an unparalleled mastery and understanding for the human component of both products and business relationships; and (2) unfailingly operates at the highest levels of integrity, openness, and fairness. I recommend Ron wholeheartedly and without reservation.
Ron was able to quickly identify our most valuable customers. Based on his data driven methodology, we were able to drive more revenue for our flagship product and zero in on untapped needs within that segment. By mapping customer needs, we were able to deliver more value with less effort. Ron is also a pro at revenue modeling which helped us secure our first round of capital investment.
Ron and team have been an amazing partner for software development. From the inception of the partnership to its fulfillment, Ron was an invested partner. He was a great sounding board on designing the software in keeping with our IRB-approved methods. Somehow in only a few days, he turnaround a mobile app with a working prototype that was able to collect 100k data points in only days. The best part was the pleasing user interface through multiple iterations that his team assembled that allowed us to translate our needs into a well received product by the research assistants.
Ron is a passionate problem-solver, and he brings a powerful balance of creativity and analytical focus to understanding problems and designing strategy. His eye is always on the customer, tirelessly asking questions to get a better understanding of the problem he is trying to solve.
