My name is Christine Comaford. I am a New York Times bestselling author, CEO of Mighty Ventures, an innovation accelerator that helps businesses to massively increase sales, product offerings, and company value. I have built and sold 5 of my own businesses with an average 700% return on investment, served as a board director or in-the-trenches advisor to 36 startups, and has invested in over 200 startups (including Google) as a venture capitalist or angel investor. I have consulted to the White House (Clinton and Bush), 700 of the Fortune 1000, and over 300 small businesses.
Bill Gates calls me “super high bandwidth.” Bill Clinton has thanked me for “fostering American entrepreneurship.” Newsweek says “by reputation, that I am the person you want to partner with.”
I have led many lives: Buddhist monk, Microsoft engineer, geisha trainee, entrepreneur, and venture capitalist. My triumphs and disasters are revealed in my New York Times (and USA Today, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and Amazon.com ) bestselling business book: Rules for Renegades: How to Make More Money, Rock Your Career, and Revel in Your Individuality.
I have appeared on CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, FOX Business Network, PBS, CNET and am frequently quoted in the business, technology and general press at large. Stanford Graduate School of Business has done two case studies on me and PBS has featured me in three specials (Triumph of the Nerds, Nerds 2.0.1, and Nerd TV ). CNET has also broadcast two specials covering my unconventional rise to success as a woman with neither a high school diploma nor college degree.
I believe we can do well and do good, using business as a path for personal development, wealth creation, and philanthropy.
I look forward to contributing to this community and helping all entrepreneurs achieve the Results they are looking for!
To Your Success,
