Hi, I’m Joel Louis founder of Startup Dad Headquarters (HQ). I’m on a mission to help extraordinary Father’s of today who are / want to be fully engaged in every aspect of their children lives and who are also trying to figure out how to purse their dreams of entrepreneurship in order to leave a legacy behind.
Our vision at Startup Dad HQ is to inspire and enable one small business launch every single day by father’s all over the world.
On, Father’s Day, 2014 I launched Startup Dad HQ, a business interview show / podcast, focused on the intersection between The Evolution of Dads and Entrepreneurship. Each interview takes us through the journey, of our guest,. They share their failures, bumps and bruises and their rise to the top as they navigated through the complexities of Fatherhood, Entrepreneurship and Life.
Startup Dad HQ also features webinars and live interactive workshops with content experts in all areas of Fatherhood and Entrepreneurship.
What matters most to me and everything that I do is for my family. I am married to a gorgeous NICU nurse and we have three beautiful daughters under the age of 6. I know in no time they will be off to college so my time with them, right now!, means more than anything.
Who am I? Well I like to think of myself as a Fortune 100 Corporate Dad gone ROGUE! After nearly 14 years as a highly successful manager at Intel Corporation I decided, enough was enough, it was time to stop working on someone else’s dream and start working on my own. It took me almost a year and a half of self exploration and lots of sleepless nights to pinpoint my true passions but when the dust settled it was clear! I wanted to build a platform that focused on the extraordinary Father’s of today who are fully engaged in every aspect of their children lives and have also managed to purse their dreams of entrepreneurship in order to leave a legacy behind.
