Ron J. Williams
Co-Founder and CEO, Knodes
Named one of Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in Business, Ron J. Williams is the CEO and Co-founder of Knodes, the social data context platform that specializes in targeted word of mouth. He obsesses about making human networks actually work and loves connecting people. Before co-founding Knodes, Ron co-founded SnapGoods, an early leader in the "sharing economy". He believes that the great irony of this hyper connected age is that we still resort to broadcast spray and pray tactics to activate support. He is a Brooklyn native, active mentor, speaker and lover of speed. He gets pretty amped about STEM education, and he is a big asker of “why not?"
