Entrepreneur, Advisor, Inventor, Occasional Investor
I am brucewarila on gmail and twitter.
If calling (+1.978.265.5432), please send me a text first so that I know that you are a human.
I live in Massachusetts with my wife and four children.
When I am not moving my ventures forward (80% of the list below), I advise and occasionally work for founders who are dedicated to launching innovations that will change the world (20% of the list below).
Atomic Recreation - 2018 - a recreation innovation lab dedicated to creating, testing, and commercializing ideas that will motivate more humans to vigorously exercise. I am currently designing software and facilities that will support Atomic’s mission.
SQGO Innovations - 2018 - I collaborate on the writing of patent claims (mobile software) and on the strategy and details involved in patent monetization. I also recruit top-tier developer talent to advise the company on the state of the art [software].
Bella Gaia - 2018 - similar to Cirque Du Soleil or Blue Man Group, but dedicated to immersive ecotainment. I crunch numbers and advise the founder on matters related to planning and funding the construction of the world’s first dedicated fulldome eco theatre.
AlwaysBeMoving.org - 2018 - a website where experienced soccer coaches collaborate to transfer knowledge to new soccer coaches. I created this site to grow the pool of dedicated soccer players.
Clean Green Music Machine - 2017 - a nonprofit dedicated to changing the trajectory of climate change. I created the social impact analysis, the business plan, the executive summary, the donor pitch, the CGMM website, the Turn It Up website, the app strategy, and a crypto token protocol that will support the mission of CGMM.
Fitivity - 2017 - I advised the founder on a business, tech, and a content strategy that led to Fitivity’s first significant round of investment.
StackChat (messaging) - 2016 - designed prototypes, interviewed potential users, tested brand concepts, and analyzed the opportunity for creating a niche chat platform.
3RD (hospitality) - analyzed the investor opportunity for, and the social impact of, a new hospitality brand that launched in 2015. In the process, I created the most widely downloaded free restaurant pro forma in the world.

Emergent Discovery (ad targeting) - designed product prototypes and analyzed the opportunity for targeting banner ads based upon music preferences.
Music Xray - responsible for the song submission business model, the brand name, recruiting the CTO, and for delivering Music Xray’s initial product iteration.
Jediah - while working in the music industry, I backed a band. The music was great, but the band crashed and burned. However, Jediah’s legal framework inspired hundreds of record labels and thousands of artists to create interest-aligning 360 deals.
