Patrick is a serial entrepreneur with more than 25 years of experience building software and hardware companies in both consumer and enterprise markets. Throughout his career as key product visionary and senior marketing executive, he has laid the roadmap and led the growth efforts for 15 startups backed by more than $100 million in venture financing. As founder and chief marketing officer of yap.TV, he helped to usher in the second-screen/social TV mobile phenomenon.
Long before Siri, Patrick launched the first natural-voice automated pizza ordering system as vice president of marketing with Jacent (since acquired by Yum! Brands). He served as vice president of marketing with Catch.com, and pioneered green technology serving as vice president of marketing with Integrity Block. He recently relocated from Silicon Valley to Santa Fe to found a new startup and work with leading worldwide technology incubator, the Founder Institute, to open a chapter extension serving Santa Fe and the greater New Mexico area. Patrick serves as an advisor to Silicon Valley startup Soldsie and LiveMagic, and is a mentor with Spark Labs.
His newest quest, Startup Santa Fe, is a public/private partnership with the City of Santa Fe and Creative Santa Fe that provides access to entrepreneurial resources online and throughout New Mexico. This new effort will help entrepreneurs learn how to move ideas forward and connect with people that can help make it happen.
In partnership with Albuquerque’s Creative Startups, the New Mexico History Museum leads a New Mexico chapter of the international CreativeMornings program. Each month, alternating between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, we offer casual talks forcreative professionals, focused on various themes.
