I create connections
I work fractionally across multiple projects at once, which helps me create connections and form unexpected bonds. My training as a journalist taught me the deep inquiry skills required for learning something new, and I carry this trait with me when helping teams kickstart new initiatives that lean on community, peer learning, and curriculum development.
Design online and offline user communities that are incentive-aligned and high-impact
Kick off special projects and activations through unique partnerships, content, & other activities
Convert content into curriculum to educate or onboard key community-members or user groups

Hi, I'm Bethany.
With a decade of experience in the tech sector, I’ve spent a lot of time in go-to-market functions in startups and venture capital. You may know me for curating a network of 100 tech founders who found great value in blending their disconnected knowledge that spans many industries. (Or for for that time I carried an empty picture frame all around NYC.) I integrate a network-focused approach into all of my client work and projects.
