John graduated Cum Laude from Augsburg College in Minneapolis with a Finance Major and Minors in Religion, Economics and MIS (IT). This jumpstarted his fifteen-year long career in public finance and investment banking. From there he began his journey as a commercial banker.
Over the last fifteen years, John has gained a strong knowledge and passion for helping entrepreneurs start and successfully grow their businesses.
