ThinkClearly was founded by Greg Laugero and Jason Keller to help startups scale up. Separately and together, Jason and Greg have been working with and around startups and high growth organizations (as founders, as employees, and advisors) for over 20 years. While their experience and expertise spans companies of all sizes, their focus for ThinkClearly is on startups that are moving into high growth.
The challenges faced by executive leadership in these situations are many. The things that founders and their teams do well in the startup stage are not necessarily the things they should do when companies start to grow. ThinkClearly helps founders, growth company executives, and investors address the growth challenges that come with scaling up.
Jason brings over 20 years of experience building high growth companies from the ground up. His depth and breadth of expertise includes capital strategy, high growth operations, business development, partnerships, board relations, and executive development. His experience includes COO roles at Telekenex and Welltok; CEO roles at TalentKode, Extension 11, and The Fuel Team. He has led his companies through funding rounds, large and small, as well as several acquisitions.
With over 20 years in enterprise software, Greg has become a go-to advisor in the following areas that startup and expansion stage companies face -- business modeling, leadership and management during growth, UX strategy, UX design, product strategy, product management, elevator pitches, value propositions. His experience includes founder/COO of Brain Ranger, founder/President of Industrial Wisdom, as well as consultant to a wide range of companies including Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, Qwest (now Century Link), Trizetto, myStrength, and GlaxoSmithKline.
