About Me

Have you had dreams of starting your own business? Are you struggling to get your idea off the ground?

I can help you. 

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. Yours could be next. 

I understand first hand the challenges of starting a business from scratch and how lonely that journey can be. 

I started my first company with no business experience. Through sheer persistence, 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. 

Entrepreneurship is my passion. Helping entrepreneurs build the businesses of their dream is my calling.

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

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 works with businesses with revenue over $250,000 grow to $1 Million and beyond.

Why am I telling you all this? To show that I have walked the walk. I have achieved tremendous success as an entrepreneur and been through gut-wrenching failure and everything in between.

Through it all, I have learned lessons that I bring to every startup engagement, helping to shorten your learning curve and put you on a path to a thriving business.

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

If what you’ve been doing is not working, it’s time to try a proven way of starting a business.

I can help you increase your odds of success. 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.
