I have worked closely with a number of amazing founders and companies such as Foursquare, Keep.com and Uber. I specialize in turning ideas into reality and plans into action. I spend my time researching crowdfunding and writing about entrepreneurship and crowdfunding in various blogs.

    As a founder of Vizlow,& Directionstartup WIllliam spends most of his waking day (and probably a portion of some sleepless night) turning ideas into reality and plans into action

William Santos Powell grew up in a small town in Massachusetts where he first discovered his entrepreneurial spirit. He then moved to New York City to pursue his dreams to become the Next Big Thing in the Entrepreneur world. He's started two businesses in the past year, Direction Start Up and Vizlow both of which have proven to be successful. This self made man has also helped kick start the careers of others with his inspiration and knowledge of the crowdfunding world.
