Accomplishments: Co-founding Rising Tide Capital, which helps struggling entrepreneurs start and grow businesses in low-income communities; building the organization to a staff of 20, serving communities in four cities: Jersey City, Union City, Orange Township and Newark; developing a system to accurately measure the organization's impact.

Super Power: To engage in noninflationary money printing, and infinitely produce the resources that people and organizations need to change the world around them.

Best Business Advice: "During a meeting we had at the very beginning stages of Rising Tide Capital, a mentor told me that no one would take us seriously for the first three years, and not to take it personally, but to push on and earn trust through performance. It was great advice, and I have passed it on many times over the years."

Most Influential Role Models: "My parents. They were the ones who taught me that the purpose of life is to learn how to love. That idea is my 'North Star.'"

Essential App: "Wunderlist, a cloud-based task-management app that syncs to all my devices and allows me to instantly enter and delegate any new 'to-do' items."
