Michael McClure, Managing Partner at Cometa Group and Founder of Crashcode

As Founder of Cometa, Michael has grown the company from a small single-office web development shop based in Connecticut into a boutique software consulting firm with offices in the United States, Europe, and Latin America specializing in FinTech, healthcare, education, and venture consulting. With a professional background spanning the spectrum of politics, marketing, and real estate and tech entrepreneurs himself, his expertise at Cometa includes strategy development, client counsel, marketing, design, recruitment and anything else in between.

He also holds leadership positions as an innovation and business development advisor for several leading fin-tech and ed-tech companies and has recently launched Crashcode in Stamford, a non-profit digital literacy and technology boot camp initiative in partnership with other tech community leaders to make digital literacy available for anyone. Courses are offered at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels and focus on the fundamentals of programming for the web, up to launching rich web applications.

When not wearing one of his many business hats, he is most likely to be found passionately debating and enjoying time with friends and family.
