Meg Olsen

Meg has spent more than 25 years in the tech sector, and half of that time at Microsoft. She built a reputation for directing complex global initiatives in business analysis, software development and deployment, customer-feedback process development, and courseware production.

"Don’t just make room at the table – make the table a place where people want to be. This is the common cord that weaves through my life and work. I remove obstacles, hold up mirrors, change the rules, find talent, fill gaps, and listen. I am drawn to projects where I can build community by marshalling the resources and talent at hand. In the 25+ years I have spent in the software industry as a project manager, program manager, managing editor, or business analyst, my greatest satisfaction – and success – has always come from being that catalyst." --Meg Olsen

“Treat people the way you want to be treated. That’s what I believe and what I strive to do with everyone I associate with – in a corporate environment or in my personal life. My philosophy is it’s ok to have fun at work – after all, we spend more waking hours at work than we do at home. Why not enjoy it? Enjoying what you do
does not negate doing it well. I’m proud of the way Waypoint Ventures treats their customers, employees and contractors. Our long term relationships are proof that our approach is successful.” --Danica Richard
