Studying Economics at UCLA to earning an MBA from the Wharton School of Business, to working with some of the largest organizations around, such as Eli Lily, Janus Funds, IBM, PwC, and the J. Paul Getty Museum, to founding, operating, and successfully navigating the M&A exit process for his own SaaS company has given Steven insights from every angle of the success & innovation spectrum.
