I’m Alicia Diamond and I’m so happy you’re here. I’m looking forward to getting to you know you and to learn about your idea/business. In the meantime, here is a bit more about me and my background.
My personal passions and professional experience have prepared me to be your project-COO, your big-thinking coach, and your execution-oriented cheerleader.
I’ve worked exclusively for entrepreneurs since graduating college. I gravitated away from the traditional career path for my major (Economics) and found a very happy home working with a team of entrepreneurs with a big idea: expand one coffee and gelato cafe into a regional chain of cafes and wholesale gelato distribution. It was my dream job: building something from scratch, hands-on involvement and ownership in every aspect of the business, working for wonderful people on a product I genuinely loved.
Since those humble (and very sticky!) beginnings, I’ve pursued opportunities working with teams who believe their big idea can change the world. I worked with seasoned advertising executives who recognized an opportunity to completely reinvent the 1960’s client service model. From there, I joined a family office focused 100% on proprietary investment opportunities; that is, we create our own companies and products to invest in. Pretty radical and a lot of fun!
Along the way, I’ve worked with individual entrepreneurs and pre-revenue startup teams on projects as diverse as jewelry and AI.
I get my energy from passionate leaders and their teams. I believe in the power of capitalism to be a positive force for good. I believe in the power of experimentation and rapid learning. Most of all, I believe in the passion of people. I’ll bet on a passionate, hungry team over a well-funded team any day of the week.
I can’t wait to hear more about your business and how I can help.
