Ryan Freeze / Disrupt Atlanta, LLC
I love challenges and creating solutions. Have been doing this web stuff since 1995, I have been exposed to a lot of different business models.
My focus today is leveling the playing field for small business operators and the national brands who take the human element out of the transaction.
You can find me at various conferences and events. I participate in workshops, panels, seminars, and sometimes I just like to talk over a single malt whiskey. I’m either a board member, managing partner, or otherwise involved in a number of exciting businesses looking to disrupt consumer relations for good.
