I have known Lyden for the past 5 years. Lyden and I attended Xavier University together and participated in several entrepreneurial competitions. Lyden is the definition of passion. He gives 110% always. No questions asked. I can't wait to see what he does with Spatial! Dude is a rock star!

Greg Smith

As long as I've known Brian and Lyden, they've been driven. Their passion for discovery is what makes them great students and leaders. Their creation, Spatial, is the next step in the recommendation system space. It answers the question of where do I go when I want an experience.

Jason Hauer

Lyden is a high character, intelligent and strong entreprenurial leader who will persist until he gets it right. I'd work with him in a heartbeat.

Chris Welter

Spatial is just cool. It gives a human feel to the typical mapping experience. If I'm talking to someone, they could tell me what an area is like. Online, that same information just isn't really available. Outside of Spatial, there's no good way to get that softer information without having a friend live literally everywhere you'd like to check out. In leading Spatial, Lyden gets people and how to design tech that serves people.

John Durso

I would like to recommend Spatial because of the opportunities I see to help people in their search for homes and locations to live. The application can be very useful for people to determine what area of a town they would feel most comfortable living. I see a lot of benefits and uses in the Real Estate world!

Tim Balzer

At Roadtrippers, we've always valued our users' reviews and ratings to help gauge whether or not a certain place would be ideal for your next trip. When you're creating a trip or visiting a new area, though, you often want to know more about specific regions that could be perfect for you--not just a singular place. Spatial is working to funnel that type of rapid, regional analysis into a package that can plug right into existing services like Roadtrippers. They're going to take out the hassle so that we can focus on surfacing the best places and regions to our users with minimum friction.

I've had the pleasure to talk to Lyden and Brian about Spatial over the last few weeks and am incredibly excited to see the service continue to grow. Aside from Spatial being an incredibly promising service, both Lyden and Brian bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. I can't wait to sign up!

Justin Masterson Advisor at Kai Coach

I have met few young entrepreneurs with the combination of diligence and foresight that Lyden demonstrates. Spatial is a brilliant idea, but great ideas are a small part of the equation: what Lyden brings is the work ethic, organization and dedication to see it through to big success. He is has a customer-centric focus and a design-oriented lens, and will turn Spatial from a great concept into a winning reality.

Marvin Abrinica CEO at The Wunderfund

As an advisor, I've seen some great teams. This is one of them. I have no doubt that Lyden will make Spatial into something special. He's an innovation guru and futurist, and I'm looking forward to seeing this come to life.

Geoff Zoeckler Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Instructor at Miami University: Farmer School of Business

Lyden is the kind of guy that is going to see his idea across the finish line. While anything he touches is likely to be successful, Spatial is a great idea that has a lot of market potential. Millennials spike high when it comes to desire for adventure. Three day weekends are used to visit new areas of the city and of the US. Spatial is built to address a very strong emotional consumer insight related to those new traveling experiences. I'm excited to see this thing grow.

Ryan (Ry) Walker CEO at Astronomer

I've been advising Lyden for a few months now, I find him extremely passionate and coachable. He's making the right connections. He's a future star in our startup ecosystem.

Tarek Kamil Co-Founder at Cerkl

Great use of big data that has many applications for mapping/travel/real estate. Lyden is an energetic visionary with the right skillset to bring Geopulse to market.

Ida Abdalkhani

Having backpacked around the world, I wish an app liked Geopulse existed when I was discovering new areas! It would have made me a more informed traveler so that I could get a 'pulse' on an area before I ventured there to assess safety and vibe so that I could fearlessly discover new cities. It would also have helped me discover new places that were not already on my radar by seeing a city's vibes populate, allowing me to find areas that aligned with my interests. Look forward to this app being available soon so I can use it on my next business or leisure trip!
