As co-founder and CEO, Mike Kinkead has started and built three software and information companies from scratch, and has been brought in by the Board to be the CEO of three other software firms. One of Mike’s companies was on the INC. 500 and INC. 100 lists of most rapidly growing, privately held companies in the United States.

In 1986, Mike was one of six founders of the Massachusetts Software Council (now the Mass Technology Leadership Council) where he served as Chairman and continues to serve on its Executive Committee and Board. As part of the MassTLC Educational Foundation, for several years Mike was a Massachusetts judge for Technovation, a nationwide social innovation contest for teams of middle school and high school girls in the U.S. The challenge for each team was to design and build an app to address an important issue facing their local communities.

Mike helps high technology start-up and early-to-mid-stage companies and non-profit organizations that are disruptive innovators and where a well-differentiated strategy, exceptional sales, marketing and service culture is critical to success. One of his clients was Oxfam America where he introduced Tom Freese’s Question-Based Selling methodology to the major gifts team. Over the last six years, one of his current clients is ROI Solutions, a best-in-class provider of an all-channel fundraising CRM to medium and large non-profits.
