ZipDial

Valerie R. Wagoner

After years of growing a so-far successful startup in India that is expanding into Southeast Asia, nothing in the world intimidates me. I am Founder & CEO of ZipDial, a marketing and analytics platform that creates mobile engagement with all traditional media, product packages and points of sale. We aim to be "Google Analytics for the real world", especially for emerging markets. I am most proud of the team. Previously I served as Head - Strategic Initiatives at mChek, where I built the business for the unbanked and mass market segment. My early career was spent in the Silicon Valley at eBay as well as two startups, Ning and SayNow, where I was a first employee. Stanford University is where I earned my Bachelors in Public Policy as well as my Masters in Economic Sociology. Not quite proven Specialties where I spend my time now: International expansion. So far ZipDial is in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. We are going global.


Industry Expertise

General P&L management and execution, creation of new business models and pricing structures, go-to-market strategy, product marketing, product management, sales and managing sales teams, partnerships, hiring and team building, contracts and legal, fundraising and investor relations.
