Ahoy friends. I'm Will. I live just north of Boulder Colorado with my wife Kati on a piece of land overlooking the Flatiron mountains.
My life is about helping people thrive and bringing dreams to life, so we can create the world we want to live in. On a practical level this means helping entrepreneurs build world-changing companies, creating my own companies & projects, making music, writing, and advocating for causes I care about. I'm passionate about continuous self development, new technology, and our collective cultural evolution.
In 2009, I co-founded (along with Kati Bicknell) Kindara, with the aim of empowering women and men around their bodies and their fertility. Kindara was one of the first VC funded women's health companies and has helped millions of women get pregnant, avoid pregnancy naturally or better understand their cycle. I ran Kindara as CEO between 2009 - 2016, raising all the money, managing our staff and executing on our vision. Kindara was acquired by Prima-Temp in 2018 and continues to fulfill it's mission in the world.
In terms of current projects, I currently coach a small group of social-impact entrepreneurs, helping them to raise money and succeed. I pick companies I feel passionate about and commit deeply to their success.
In 2019 I founded GetFunded, a fundraising accelerator for entrepreneurs. My goal is to get 100 impact companies funded (3 down, 97 to go).
In prior times, I co-founded Lumetro (an online distributor of energy efficient lighting) and served as director of sustainability at Watershed Technologies.
From 2001 - 2003 I designed, built, and tested the iSun solar car which we later raced from Chicago to Los Angeles in the 2003 American Solar Challenge. This was a deeply satisfying project: We created something out of nothing and along the way I learned the power of creativity, ingenuity, sticktoitiveness, and believing in something.
In terms of education I'm a life-long learner. Officially I am a graduate of HAXLR8R, Founder Institute, the Landmark Education Curriculum for Living, and McGill University, where I received academic honors in Mechanical Engineering and Economics. Unofficially I have many teachers including TED, Allison Armstrong, David Deida, David Cates, Kevin Kelly, Paul Graham and Eddie Izzard among others.
