Andy Ellwood was born with the gift of gab and raised with an overdeveloped self esteem. While making a name for himself with his caffeine fueled hustle, he's seen more than his fair share of ups and downs on the journey of the entrepreneur.  He currently serves at President for StockUp.

A graduate of Texas A&M, Andy quickly learned what life on the front lines of sales looks like, first selling life insurance and then stepping up his game to selling private jets for Warren Buffett. He leveraged those lessons into roles leading business development and partnerships for Gowalla through its acquisition by Facebook 2011 and for Waze through its acquisition by Google in 2013.

Andy is a part of the founding team of Exosphere, an entrepreneurial education community in Santiago, Chile, and serves as the Trustee of its foundation. As a sought after speaker, consultant, and start-up advisor, his roster of entrepreneurs, start-ups, and big brands continues to grow as a result of the increased demand for real world insights on the topics of innovation and entrepreneurship.
