Facilitators


Joey Arora
Director, Community Development - United Stated Air Force Innovation

Director of Community Development for Air Force Innovation, Veteran Entrepreneur, Speaker, Startup Weekend Facilitator. Hellbent on making our Govt innovative.

I believe that entrepreneurship is the way to make the world a better place for people. Creating access to capital and jobs drives our economy. Enabling people who foster innovation and change is critical to our success as a society.

I love speaking on entrepreneurship and why/how governments need to work with startups.

I am an Air Force Captain and have served as an Airfield Operations Officer in the US and in Afghanistan. These are the things I have learned from the military:
I had the opportunity to lead both large and small teams in day-to-day operations as well as critical mission based objectives. We have built teams to address the execution and planning of over $1.2 billion dollars of construction, executing airport operations with teams ranging from 60-128 people.

Specialties: Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Startups, Community Development, Collaboration, Public Speaking, Change Management, Logistics and Project Management.

6X Startup Weekend Facilitator all around the US. Always happy to do another one!
