We're delighted to announce that Taylor McPartland has joined The Junto Institute as Managing Director, Los Angeles. In his role, Taylor will help Junto build the LA market by recruiting companies for our program cohorts, creating the local Junto community of Mentors, Instructors, and Partners, and managing the program which begins this fall.
Taylor came highly recommended to us by a mutual friend in LA. In addition to expressing interest in the Managing Director role, he has been actively involved with our initial efforts in LA, attending our first workshop, making an introduction to an important partner, and promoting our local events. His reputation, character, interests, and experience align well with our needs and values, and he will be a highly effective brand ambassador for Junto.
One of Taylor's unique attributes is his relationship with both LA's emerging startup economy and its legacy as the entertainment business capital. He is founder and Executive Director of ScaleLA, a membership organization which helps LA tech companies engage with their government and community. Prior to ScaleLA, he was co-founder of CrowdfundX, an LA startup that began as a crowdfunding agency and has evolved into the first artificially intelligent investor marketing engine.
We're excited to have Taylor join our team and Tribe, and look forward to his leadership of our second market.
