His work spanned market leaders and venture funded startups alike in search, real estate, HealthIT, AI, security, consumer web, and more in the highly competitive San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle, WA, technology centers. After eight years on the West Coast he "came home" with his growing family to Mid-Missouri where he currently lives with his wife Kate, a healthcare administrator, and kids & Co-Chief Entertainment Officers, Ford & Grace. Prior to all of this, Grant wandered around the broadcasting and media world receiving his degree from Northwest Missouri State University in Broadcasting and Business and an education in operating without sleep from several radio stations. When not professionally engaged Grant enjoys the outdoors, travel, great food, and a bad joke.
Mentor Statement: After growing companies on the West Coast and watching the success of other emerging technology centers across the country, I'm excited to help fellow entrepreneurs leverage the resources of our Mid-Missouri home. Together I hope we can build thriving companies that create jobs, inspire entrepreneurial culture, & continue the work of all those before us in preparing our community for the changing landscape of the 21st Century economy and an ever flattening world.
