Working with tech start-ups and visionaries (including Elon Musk), Cynthia is delighted to share her wisdom and expertise with entrepreneurs. She started her own company Care Navigate after the last economic meltdown and knows success takes execution, tenacity and reinvention, not just great ideas.

Most recently director of international implementation at eXp Worldwide Holdings, a global real estate company, Cynthia was chartered with launching new markets from scratch in under 6 months. She accomplished this rapid roll-out by collaborating with more than a dozen functional teams and coaching country leaders, building a repeatable, sustainable process for future countries.

Cynthia is advising companies at the intersection of technology, real estate and other sectors. One recent example is VirBELA, a cloud-based workspace redefining how people can effectively interact across cities and the world.

Cynthia has almost always had international added to her role. With global expansion easier now more than ever and technology eroding borders, Founders Space entrepreneurs can tap this knowhow.

Business sector experience spans data analytics, customer relationship management, voice and telecom, human resources, biotech, healthcare and real estate. Management positions at notable companies include Kindred Healthcare, Informix/IBM and Compaq.

Cynthia received her B.A. in Economics and Spanish at UC Davis and has a master’s in Global Policy Studies from UC San Diego. She’s fluent in Spanish and learning French and Portuguese.

When she’s not advising talent, she composes poetry, music and plays piano. Cynthia enjoys hiking, biking, skiing, being outdoors with family and friends.
