Renée is the Co-Founder and CEO of Onboardly, a company that works with funded technology startups that have a product their customers love. Often referred to as a 'geek in stilettos.’ Renée has been an entrepreneur since she was 17-years-old. Having run a successful restaurant at such a young age, she quickly learned the necessary skills and tactics needed to promote her companies. Her belief that one must always measure content strategy against a benchmark—i.e. customer acquisition—is perhaps what has led her to achieve time and tested results with startups she’s worked with in the past and will continue to achieve moving forward.
