Helping Tech Startups Get Going, Get Momentum, Grow and Exit

Who We Are

“We” is “me”. I’m George Garrick and for the last 20 years I’ve lived in Silicon Valley and have been CEO of a number of Internet and tech startups ranging from early stage to later stage, including turnarounds and growth companies, and resulting in $3B of shareholder value through one IPO and 5 exits. I’ve also invested in, advised, or been on the Boards of almost 20 other tech startups. My domain experience covers consumer, digital media, mobile, data and analytics (see “experience”).

Prior to Silicon Valley, I spent over 15 years in Chicago where I was part of the management team that grew IRI from $2M to $300M and disrupted and transformed the CPG information business from analog to digital, leaving as CEO-North America. I also served as CEO of A.C. Nielsen, leading a turnaround in culture, GTM model, and declining revenue.

I enjoy working with tech startups and growth-stage companies while in-between CEO roles. If you think I can help you, please email me at gg@garrick.com. And if I can’t help you, there is a good chance I know somebody who can. Thus, the “we”.
