Jimmy Monaco

Startup, Tech, Finance and C-Level Executive Coach

I help leaders unlock maximum potential. With 10+ years of executive coaching, tech startup, finance and investing (private equity and hedge fund), and C-Suite / Board experience, I have personally been through nearly everything. As a former D1 athlete, 2x tech entrepreneur with two successful exits, and Wall Street investment banker, I provide executive coaching through real, tangible experience.

Coaching Expertise

My core expertise is helping executives in Technology, Business & Finance, and Operations (Mfg, etc.) industries evolve their leadership, technical, and management skills. My coaching style is direct and straightforward. I take a holistic approach to assisting leaders increase efficiency in their day-to-day roles, maximize upward career potential, and optimize time spent growing personally & professionally. My background as a Founder, investor, and operator lends itself well to working with highly driven, highly motivated individuals who are fiercely passionate and not constrained by anything.

Industry Focus

I began my career working on Wall Street as an investment banker at Barclays, where I learned the rigors of finance, strategy, and global operations. I was then recruited to a private equity firm where I quickly rose in the ranks, closing the most number of deals for any associate at the firm (30 M&A transactions executed) over a five year period. I joined the management team of a portfolio company where I helped triple the size of the business in two years before launching my first tech startup. After a successful exit, I got an MBA from Stanford before starting my second tech startup which I later sold for an attractive exit.

Target Clients

My core coaching clients are Entrepreneurs, Founders, C-Level Executives, Finance Investors (Investment Banking, Private Equity, Hedge Fund, Search Fund, Consulting, etc.), and Technology Leaders. Given my background in each of these, coupled with my passion for helping unlock potential and seeing others grow, I help leaders become better versions of themselves.
