Entrepreneur, Software Engineer, Maker, 2017 HackerFellow and most importantly, a full blown Geek.
Hey there! Let me introduce myself while you are here. My name is Yoseph Radding, and I an entrepreneur and software engineer. If you are interested in building great products, entrepreneurship, and technologies, then you came to the right place.
This is a great question! I like to think I have rather unique story.
I started out as a kid who enjoyed building and creating as a child. I remember, when I was about six or seven, building a a "deer pen" out of fallen tree limbs, nails and rope at my father's friend's house on martha's vineyard. However, I still didn't really know what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, just like anyother kid. However, that all changed when I entered high school.
Most people have a teacher or friend that really helped define them. For me, it was my high school. I went to Aviation High School in Sunnyside Queens, NY, a specialized high school for aircraft maintenance. It was here that I fell in love with troubleshooting and engineering. I learned so many invaluable skills here. To this day, I annoy everyone I work with by rambling on about how airplanes work and cool trivia facts about planes. Because of Aviation, I decided to study to become an engineer.
But my story doesn't stop there!
It wasn't until college, when I cofounded my first startup, that I truly realized what I love doing. The entire process of building the product and scaling the business was an amazing experience that I relish to this day. I fell in love with entrepreneurship with LykeMe. Since then I founded another business and I hope to found many more.
Today, I am hoping to make an impact in the Detroit startup space. I am a 2017 Hackerfellow working for Bankrate/Red Ventures (formerly SPLT) in Detroit. Here's to startups and the growing ecosystem in Detroit!
I love meeting new people and I would love to start a great community around our shared passions. If you want to get in touch, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
