George Junginger's Experience

Campus Director

The Iron Yard

Privately Held; 11-50 employees; Internet industry

July 2014Present (3 months) Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida Area

Consultant

Self

2012Present (2 years) Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina Area

My most recent project was an idea hackathon. The organization wanted to start creating a culture of intrapreneurship, where employees could start developing additional sources of revenue. It involved 100 individuals from diverse backgrounds - economists, academicians, scientists, and administrative personnel. I provided content, both original and sourced, to teach them about business ideas. The goal was for them to realize business ideas can come from anyone, based on their observations and experiences. I provided weekly material for six weeks prior to the workshop. We finished with a two day workshop where teams started with an idea, refined it, and then developed business models and plans for implementation.

Founder

Group Story

June 2009October 2011 (2 years 5 months)

Developed the concept for Group Story - a collaborative photo book company. The idea behind Group Story was to enable a person to customize a group experience down to the individual user level. The end result? A customized photo book of the memories that are important to them.

Worked with developers to create the web application (which was awarded a patent.) Involved in all areas of marketing - design, sales, customer service, social media, partnerships and trade shows.

Facilitator

Startup weekend

Nonprofit; 51-200 employees; Civic & Social Organization industry

20082011 (3 years)

2008-2009
Worked as facilitator at various Startup Weekends around the United States. We would average 100 people on a Friday night who showed up to create a business. It starts with taking all these ideas and having the participants select an idea and form a team they will work on for the weekend. The goal is to create the business by Sunday. Team size averages 8-10 people. My job was to act as the MC and facilitate the weekend. The major components in which I was involved were the ideation phase and the closing ceremony where ideas where presented and judged.

2011 - Present
Startup Weekend 2.0 - New owners, new organization, same great concept on a grander scale.

Founder

Ultrasoundjobs.com

January 1999March 2010 (11 years 3 months)

Ultrasoundjobs.com is a niche recruitment website for ultrasound professionals. It is the recognized market leader in its healthcare niche and was one of the first specialized recruitment websites. Research showed that the vacancy rate for this professional was 18% when I first created the site. I found developers and worked with them to create ultrasoundjobs.com. As the owner, I was responsible for marketing, sales, design, partnerships and trade shows. The company was sold to the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography - the licensing organization for the profession.
