I have no doubt that Rich Mallon-Day has what it takes to make a success of his newest venture, ClearWater Algae Solutions.
Rich is passionate about solving the problem, algae blooms. He has a long-standing interest in creating green solutions.
He has a track record of start-up ventures. I met him after he had already successfully launched and developed a Dolphin Watch business in North Carolina. He is a true serial entrepreneur.
He has a high level of expertise and skill in technology and has integrated this wisdom into his new venture. He worked as a systems manager for a large University when we met.
He has a friendly presence and engaging people skills in a rare combination with his technology expertise. He was a valued advisor to a Circle of Entrepreneurs that I led because of his soft, friendly interpersonal manner.
In sum, Rich has it all. Passion for the environment, a track record of entrepreneurial ventures, technology knowledge and skill, and interpersonal warmth.
