Passionate entrepreneur and advisor Spike McDougall loves helping entrepreneurs so much that he would practically do it pro bono. Having participated in the launch of several companies, he has experienced successes and failures and has learned how to grow from the obstacles common to most business owners. As a Cultivate Advisor, he brings his unique background, energy, enthusiasm, and drive to help others succeed.
Like many entrepreneurs, Spike had more real-world experience than formal education when he founded his first business. Launching a multinational telecommunications company with residential e-commerce solutions, he eventually added a separate commercial solutions division with equipment and installation services. After that, he started a wine import and distribution company with self-curated brands and divisions.
