About Me

Do you dream of escaping your corporate, 9-5 life to start your own business? 

Do you feel pressure to quit your job and pursue your dream?

Let me let you in on a little secret: Quitting your job to start a business cold turkey is a very bad idea and actually reckless. 

Before you leave to build a business, you should make sure your idea is actually worth pursuing.

That’s where I come in. 

Hi, I am Kwame Kuadey, Entrepreneur, Speaker, and Startup Advisor. I have spent the last 12 years helping would-be entrepreneurs turn their ideas into thriving businesses. 

Rather than taking the plunge to start a business, I work with you to dip your toes in first. Once your business gains traction, I help you transition to running your business full time. 

I understand first hand the challenges of leaving a corporate career to start a business. I was once in your shoes. 

I started my first company while working a corporate job. I eventually left that job to run my business full time. 

I got a big break when I successfully pitched my company on ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank – and landed a deal.

I grew that company close to $25 million in revenue, making the Inc 500 list once and the Inc. 5000 three times. In 2014, I was awarded the prestigious EY Entrepreneur of the Year award in Maryland. See my full bio link below. 

I now work with people in corporate jobs make the transition to owning their own business through my “Know Before You Start” program. 

In my experience, the #1 reason most startups fail is thinking they know what the customer wants and failing to investigate the market. 

My approach will help you avoid that mistake and increase your odds of success. 

I will work with you one-on-one to accomplish the following:

✅ Help you start your business on the side while still working your full-time job.
✅Validate your business idea to make sure your idea is worth pursuing. 
✅Once your business gains traction, help you transition to becoming a full-time entrepreneur. 

Don’t sit on the sidelines wondering what could have or should have. 

it’s time to take the next step towards your dream of becoming your own boss.

Full Bio

Hi, I am Kwame Kuadey and thank you for stopping by. 

I work with would-be entrepreneurs, helping them turn their ideas into thriving businesses. 

I started my first company with no business experience. At the time, I was working a full-time corporate job but had a burning desire to pursue this business idea I had. 

I was scared to leave my corporate job to pursue my idea because the money was good and my wife and I were about to have our first child and I could not risk the financial uncertainty of quitting my job and starting a business.

I, therefore, started the business on the side, while working my full-time job. After six months, I started gaining traction and knew I had to leave my job if this business is going to reach it’s potential. However, I was still too scared to leave.

Eventually, I got a blessing in disguise. During the great depression of 2018, my company laid off 50,000 people, and I was one of them.

I took that as a sign to pursue my business full time.

I got a big break when I successfully pitched my company on ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank – and landed a deal.

I grew that company to $60 million in total revenue. We made the INC. 500 once and the INC 5000 three consecutive years. In 2014, I was awarded the prestigious EY Entrepreneur of the Year award in Maryland. 

I now spend my time pursuing my true calling, which is helping entrepreneurs build the businesses of their dream.

In addition to running two businesses (Thrive Company and New Rhino), of my own, I am an Adjunct Professor at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, teaching Entrepreneurial Finance 

I also sit on the advisory board of Betamore, one of the premier startup incubators in Baltimore.

I am a member of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), the world’s largest peer-to-peer network of entrepreneurs and I currently help run the EO Baltimore Accelerator program, which helps businesses scale from $250,000 in revenue to over $1 Million and beyond.

I can help you increase your odds of success in business. I will teach you how to go from a dream you cannot stop thinking about, to a business that solves a problem people will pay you for.
