Co-Founder and Executive Mentor
After a 28-year career in product management, supply chain management, and profit center executive leadership positions at The Dow Chemical Company, Brad Lienhart moved to RTP to begin many years of founder/investor/executive support activity with Triangle based start-ups.
These start-ups have been based on novel technologies licensed from the Triangle’s major universities and ideas launched by working people wanting to pursue a dream and a new career. Brad has developed and deployed a number of techniques for evaluating, screening, and resourcing new technologies and products.
Our mentoring is impartial, and our approach is to advise and guide entrepreneurs so that they have a sense of accomplishment in making their own business decisions. In this way, they “own” their decisions. We do not do their work for them, but we do encourage them to do the right work. When help is needed from other business experts, we make referrals and active introductions to the entrepreneur from our extensive base of business contacts.
In addition to our guidance, we ask many questions that help the entrepreneurs determine if they have all the information that they need to make well-founded business decisions. Then, we simply hold them accountable for achieving their own business objectives, meeting their commitments, and following through on their own decisions.
Thank you for taking a look around. If you’re an entrepreneur who is:
