Ross Rosen






It's a bit eclectic, but I do a lot of different things:


Business Consulting

Go-to-market strategy, product marketing, product management, and general startup strategy.

Software Development

Full-stack web development, backend python dev, data science, analytics, and visualizations.

Entrepreneurship

I'm always working on my next thing.

Business Consulting


I’ve spent over 20 years building new markets for startups – as a software engineer, a product manager, a marketing executive, a sales leader, and as a founder and CEO. I’ve been part of wild successes (0 to $10b market cap in 4 years), moderate successes, and outright failures. I’ve focused mostly on enterprise software, but also ran a consumer internet startup and even led business development for an industrial machinery company. The common theme has been to use the tools of product, marketing, and sales to create and grow a market and beat the competition.

Software Development


After a 20 year hiatus, I've taken up coding again. I love it.

I'm a full stack web developer with a particular interest in data analysis and visualization.
I use python in the backend wherever possible and have done a bit of machine learning.
One recent project is a cross-platform desktop application built with Electron.
It has a Vue front-end and a python backend.
(Yes - I should have used node for the back-end, but python makes me happy.)

I do freelance work and also work on my own projects.

Entrepreneurship


I'm a startup guy. During the .com craziness, I was part of the startup team that grew Kana Communications from 0 to 1200 people in 4 years. Later I was VP of marketing for a company that sold software to the insurance industry. (Yes - that was as bad as it sounds.) I started my own social network company. (Facebook did slightly better than us.) I worked as a consultant helping early stage startups raise money and grow their businesses. I even worked on a project doing nanopore DNA sequencing. Most recently I coufounded a gym.

I've always got some plan I'm working on.
