About the instructor

Hi there! My name is Michael Thomas. I'm an entrepreneur and growth enthusiast. As the Head of Sales Development at Highfive (backed by a16z and Google Ventures) I created the first $1 million revenue channel at the company.

After leaving the company, I started SimpleData. In my first 6 months I grew revenue from $0 to $25,000 / mo. I sold the company in 2017 and now spend my time writing for magazines like FastCompany and making documentaries. 

I've helped entrepreneurs all over the world grow their business and reach US markets.
