I co-founded Meta Search in 2014 after watching my mom try, and fail, to find files on her computer. We launched Meta to thousands of beta users before merging with Diffeo in 2016. At Diffeo I focused on financial services customers (MassChallenge FinTech 100K Diamond Award 2019, FinTech Innovation Lab 2018) and leading partnerships with Salesforce (Salesforce Incubator 2017: AI Cohort) and other strategic partners. Diffeo was acquired by Salesforce in 2019 where I now lead product for the integrated Diffeo team.

DIffeo is now Einstein Relationship Insights for Salesforce, an AI-powered research assistant that searches ahead of users to find information before they know they need it.

Professional Background

Founders are everywhere, but resources aren’t.

That’s a shame, because the next big idea could come from anywhere.


The Massachusetts Founder Network aims to bridge the gap, giving startup founders equitable access to resources that will help their companies grow.


We support MA founders no matter where they come from, their company’s stage, or their business sector. We want to democratize access to the resources that will help them accelerate—and excel. All founders are welcome to find resources and community at MFN while creating connections, expanding their networks, and learning from one another.

About MFN

The Massachusetts Founders Network is a central hub for all things startups, fostering innovation and collaboration across the state. MFN offers valuable networking, resources, mentorship, and community for startup founders in Massachusetts. 


MFN is produced by Lever, a startup accelerator based in North Adams. Our work is supported by funding from and collaboration with the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, based in Westborough.


We’ve been advising and connecting with entrepreneurs for years, and we’re using that knowledge and network to launch something new, with the help of an advisory board of successful founders and major players in the startup ecosystem. 

We plan to launch the Massachusetts Founders Network in summer 2023. Sign up for our newsletter to get alerts about our launch, new features, and MFN events!
