John started his entrepreneurial journey in music and entertainment. He was the first employee at a venture capital-backed music technology startup, and was the Integrator at a film production company. As Integrator he grew that company over 200% in 2 years, created award-winning, nationally broadcast commercials, and produced a film that streamed on Netflix. In addition, he spearheaded the launch of a non-profit in East Africa that trains orphans and vulnerable children to become small-business entrepreneurs. That organization has helped thousands of young people emerge from extreme poverty. Now, he helps 2nd stage companies throughout Florida grow their businesses with EOS.
