Jeff Badovick is a successful serial entrepreneur who has built multi-million-dollar businesses and raised more than $25 million in capital. Now, he is coupling his passion for the action and reward of business with his extensive skills and experience to coach other entrepreneurs.
"I began in my family's fast-growing manufacturing business during my teens. That formative experience developed the entrepreneurial drive that has motivated my successful career," he said. "I decided to make the transition to growing my own businesses full-time in my 30s. Since then, I've started, grown and exited a handful of businesses in the product, service and intellectual property sectors. I also accomplished successful mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures. I love the freedom, independence, challenge and reward of the entire entrepreneur experience."

Two is I help businesses raise capital – one of the most complex, challenging and time-consuming aspects of growing a business. Three is business execution to drive performance and create exponential results."
