Ron J. Williams

Ron J Williams is a product and strategy consultant. He helps startups and large organizations tell better stories and build things their customers actually love (and need). He has founded, invested in and advised tech startups for over 12 years and was named one of the 100 most creative people in business by Fast Company. He has deep expertise in p2p (i.e. sharing economy) and data-driven products. He loves shipping stuff that gives super powers to “the little guy.” A proud Dad and native of Brooklyn, New York, Ron J is an avid diversity advocate focused on changing how kids of color and women are represented in the innovation economy. To that end he sits on the board of BUILD.org and is also actively testing a new model of Venture Development; one that doesn’t require traditional venture capital.
