About Albert Swantner:
What do you get when you combine a mechanical engineer, seasoned CPG entrepreneur and fundraiser, and CTO of a software company?
Well, you get Albert Swantner.
During the limited 2009 job market, I launched my own consulting company and later my own CPG beverage company, Sway Water, which I used as an opportunity to grow as a leader, in both soft and technical skills, and also get comfortable with recalibrating and rebounding from failures. Now, I’ve brought my expertise at figuring things out as they come to my role as Co-Founder and CTO of Mobile Tech RX, and Co-Founder of Tandem where I’m continuing to hone my skills and cultivate this sink-or-swim mentality among my team.
