I have had many startups, having fallen flat on my face, learned a great deal to realize having a great idea isnt what's important, what's important is execution..
Hello, my name is Mark Sendo, I am the Founder/CEO of AirBlade, Extreme Hockey in a rapidly growing industry, Extreme Sports. Companies that i started have been written up by major media outlets such as TechCrunch 3 times, Venture Beat, SI, ESPN, Deadspinn, Fox, Discovery, PocketGamer, etc.. I graduated from the University of Michigan as a Macro Economist. I was honored with an award via the Stephen Ross Graduate School of Business at the University of Michigan for creating most value in complex negotiations. For the last 15 years as a CEO, I have lead my companies through recessions, pivoted and managed growth with minimal resources, and developed product design from scribbled ideas on a napkin to finished concepts. Since ideas are only ideas, I have come to learn that execution and perseverance are the two key ingredients for building successful companies. Though friends, private equity funds, and European Investors i was able to raise over $4 million in the past 15 years
