IN MEMORIAM

Helping others, at scale.

Dean was a seasoned tech executive who saw multiple billion dollar exits and a former SVP of Strategic Partnerships at Yahoo! He has mentored countless entrepreneurs, students, veterans and foster kids. He had always enjoyed volunteering his time, but wanted to help more people, in different situations. His dream was to bring a scalable platform to the world that would help people achieve their goals.

Clay and Dean met on a tennis court in 2018 and immediately their respective passions fueled one another. They both shared a strong desire to solve the problem of improvement and came at it from different perspectives. Ultimately, those two perspectives became the core mission of MprooV.
