I’m Drew Chapin, an early-stage startup growth and business development specialist who is the Head of Commerce at a stealth startup, an online discovery consultant, and a tech writer based in New York City.
I’ve had the full 360-degree entrepreneurship experience: I helped build a company from napkin to $10m+ in revenue, have been around the table when a company is acquired by Apple, and been solely responsible for the implosion of a promising adtech company. You can read more about my background here.
I’ve worked to learn from each step of my journey, both for my own growth and to share with the greater startup community. I do that as a speaker and business development contributor at Forbes and the following publications:
I’ve also been published in Entrepreneur Magazine, the New York Observer, and elsewhere. Muckrack keeps track of it all.
More than anything, I’m a business nerd who loves kicking around ideas with startup-minded people.
I’m also an avid skier, runner, and baseball fan.
