M&A expert to lead Accelerate-IT Advisors team in Silicon Valley
Accelerate-IT Advisors is pleased to announce and welcome Mike Rogers as Managing Director. Rogers will head up its advisory team in Silicon Valley and lead the company’s Startup Acceleration Program in the region.
“The appointment of Mike Rogers further strengthens the leadership of the Startup Acceleration Program and team as we fully align our service offerings to early-stage tech startups,” said Scott Arnold, Chief Operating Officer at Accelerate-IT Advisors. “Rogers has more than 15 years of experience in the digital media and cyber security software space, providing technology companies with executive insight into the transformational steps necessary to increase a company’s valuation and accelerate growth with as little investment as possible in as short a time period as possible.”
Rogers is a veteran consultant to early-stage companies, having formed and built two management consulting practices in Silicon Valley, after successful Executive Management roles in Strategy, Corporate and Business Development for both private and public companies at OpenTV, Cyberguard, Secure Computing, and Lumension Security, all of which provided successful exits for their investors.
“I am really excited to join Accelerate-IT Advisors and very much look forward to working with the Startup Acceleration Program,” said Rogers. “The team at AITA is great and the Program offers so many services necessary to help technology companies grow quickly. The AITA Startup Acceleration Program provides great tools to enable so many companies in Silicon Valley reach their dreams.”
Most recently, Rogers led The Revenue Group, where he created and implemented customized blueprints for growth to early- and mid-stage technology companies.
Mike has a BA in Economics from the University of Michigan, and an MBA in International Finance from Thunderbird.
