About Us

PAUL & MARIA WRIGHT

Who we are

Paul and Maria Wright are a husband and wife team who are passionate about helping entrepreneurs. They started their first business 18 years ago with high hopes (and unrealistic expectations). Since then, they’ve worked in various capacities with hundreds of small business owners and learned a gold mine of lessons along the way.

Today, they are bringing their combined expertise to both small business owners and also those who help small businesses by providing consulting and support services to entrepreneurs, foundations, non-profits and other entrepreneur ecosystems.

Paul brings a lifetime of experience working in the non-profit/economic development world, and Maria is the marketing and tech guru who holds a patent for her work in a tech startup. Together, they can help you serve your people more effectively.
