Nick Pirollo is an entrepreneur with a passion for helping founders navigate the technology aspects of their businesses.  

He has played in many roles over the years: from founder, to early team member, to advisor and late stage consultant.  Nick served as CTO of Scholly, an app for finding scholarships, from conception to its current standing as a successful Shark Tank alumni and member of the 2016 Forbes under 30 list for social entrepreneurship; helped grow the technology at Gradifi, a company enabling employers to showing gratitude to their employees by helping reduce their student debt, from early days to their acquisition to First Republic Bank and most recently, scaled the quickly expanding dating app Hater, that helps people find love through common hates.  

Through all of this, Nick has advised countless startups on how to navigate technology and the issues that come as you take a startup through its MVP and into its growth stages.
