What Partners Have to Say

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Patricia at two emerging technology ventures, one where I was CEO and one where I am an advisor. She brings both depth and breadth of marketing experience at a strategic and execution-level. She understands emerging markets and the marketing tactics to be successful in them.
