Nick Black
Founder & CEO, MassConvert

I’m an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and online marketing ninja. A true digital nomad who works from anywhere and everywhere there's wifi. I’m a travel-enthusiast who has founded two companies (MassConvert, FastLeadz) and serves as President of Team Austin. And in my spare time, you can find me at the yoga studio, biking around town, or just playing in the park with my black lab, Bentley.

Brandon Monroe
Vice President
Senior Digital Marketing Manager, Nutrabolt

I’m a passionate marketing leader by day and sports lover all day, every day. I like to play competitive sand volleyball in my free time. I’m deathly afraid of heights, but love flying on airplanes. If I could retire tomorrow, I'd spend the rest of my days traveling the world. First stop, Antarctica. I hear it's cool.

I help small businesses build their foundations through strategy, finance, and operations support. I love brainstorming with my wife and spending time with my kids. I have tobogganed down the Great Wall of China twice. I love traveling and have taken cooking classes on 3 continents. I’ve worked at IBM HQ, in 7 different countries, and at a startup. I once won a prize in a mustache contest.

Ammad Jilani
CTO, Trelar

I manage a team of engineers for an Artificial Intelligence software company. I like helping people grow. I still write and teach how to code. I play tennis, dance, and like to cook. I like working for startups, so much to do and never enough time. I can hammer keystrokes out blindfolded.
