Thomas Knoll

COO / Revelry

I help executives and entrepreneurs survive and thrive at building their teams and businesses. I provide Executive Advisor & Business Coach services through Revelry Labs and Revelry Ventures. I have been building online communities for 19 years, working as community architect, product designer, social marketer, customer developer, founder and startup advisor for companies including Primeloop, 500Startups, LaunchRock, Zappos, UserVoice, and Seesmic. While I have a technical background, I prefer to speak in gardening and architecture metaphors. I am inspired by storytelling, psychology, evangelism, architectural theory, social economics, game mechanics, cultural anthropology, digital ethnography, compassion, and ants.
