How does this work?

Are you responsible for building a great digital product? Are you constantly thinking about how people make decisions, and how to create better digital experiences? Yes? Then we're going to get along great. Working with product executives and their teams on strategy and design projects is what I love most. I've grown products from the back of a napkin to over 50MM users across the globe, then through successful acquisition. Clients include Fortune 100 companies, Venture Capital firms, and funded startups across the US. Learn more: https://www.ninelabs.com For speaking inquiries, please visit: https://jcornelius.com
