Branding & Marketing
Holding a Degree in Marketing, as well as a Degree in Management, Derek is no stranger to start-ups. With Elementary Co. presenting the perfect use of his degrees combined, Derek has also spent the last 4 years in the sustainability industry as Director at Olive Ventures – Derek’s first and successful start up.
Olive Ventures is a consulting & marketing firm that helps businesses of all sizes realize, and achieve their sustainability goals by aligning strategic interests with emerging market trends from the sustainability sector. All of which require rigorous research and a keen understanding of emerging technologies, as well as a devoted interest in strategy- Derek’s forte.
