About our Guest

Rob Gramer has always focused his life on learning how to make things. As a kid he rebuilt lawn mower engines instead of playing with friends. In high school, he competed in automotive design competitions. And after he received his degree in mechanical engineering, he dove into the top secret world of designing jet engines for military drones (used extensively in the Afghanistan wars).

Recently, Rob has discovered that it doesn't matter how good your idea or product is if you can't sell it, prompting him to move from engineering into sales and marketing. He's becoming an expert at getting startups off the ground, all while working with investors and inventors all over the world.
