My Business Background:

I have over sixteen years of managerial and operational experience leading startup companies as a Founder, Chairman & CEO, and am currently serving as a Marketing Executive at a 50-year-old, award-winning party goods manufacturer supplying major brands.

I have served as a Co-founder, Board Member and Investor in several startups, ranging in verticals – business networking platform (music industry), group buying (localized deals), and e-commerce.

I have successfully brought concepts to market, sold millions of dollars’ worth of goods, and also experienced startup failure firsthand. In one decade, I’ve seen nearly all facets of business, and can unequivocally say that you learn more from challenges than the easy wins.

I have been featured in numerous publications including Entrepreneur Magazine, TechCrunch, Business.com, The Trophy Kids Grow Up (WSJ press by NY Times Best Selling Author), Music Industry News Network, Yahoo! news, and more.

I enjoy being an Industry Panelist, an Advisor to Startups, a Business Consultant, and a former Board Member for Non-Profit Organizations (MCAETMonterey County Media, Arts & Technology Organization) and the Babson College Alumni Association (Bay Area).

I am a Startup Advisor at Parallel18 – a startup accelerator program that presents a unique gateway for global startups to scale from Puerto Rico. We offer USD $40K equity-free funding, multicultural high-level resources, competitive tax incentives, access to a global network, and co-working space in sunny Puerto Rico.

I am a Startup Advisor at HustleFund (a leading seed stage venture capital firm) based in San Francisco, CA. 

As a Contributing Expert and Writer for Entrepreneur Magazine, and share my knowledge of Startups, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Product Strategy and Executive Leadership with millions of founders and small business owners from around the globe.

I hold a Cum Laude degree in Business Administration with a concentration in entrepreneurship from Babson College (ranked #1 in entrepreneurship by U.S. News & World Report 25 years in a row), and have attended Stanford University (continuing education program), and Monterey Peninsula College (Dean’s Highest Honors, A.A, Business Administration).

Thank you again Reagan!”

Anna Bilha

Business Student & Entrepreneur, Babson College

“Reagan is not only prompt to talk, but he provides great insight and advice. He has plenty of expertise that he is completely willing to share with those who ask for his help. One of the best things about talking to Reagan is that he is able to help you think critically while still being kind and making you laugh. He has helped me to see things that I had not seen before – and probably would have not thought of otherwise. As a student trying to get my startup going, I can say with certainty that every student (or not) thinking about starting something should separate time to speak to Reagan.”
