Ian Gardner, CEO Helix Wind

As the CEO of a start up with little knowledge of how funding works (individual or institutional), working with Todd was of tremendous value. The financial tools he has as well as the deep objective advise was invaluable as I made critical and long term decisions regarding my company. I consider hiring Todd as one of the better decision I made as it allows me to focus on what I do best and have him worry on my behalf and protect my company and myself. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Izzy Justice, CEO EQMentor

Mr. Todd Smith is currently serving as the interim CFO of our Company Atlas Nanotechnologies, LLC. Todd has put together a fairly complex financial model for the Company. He worked on our team to submit a Grant Application to the National Science Foundation (NSF) in very shortly order, formed the company, and made sure all of the required documentation was in order. His contributions and in particular his knowledge of how to finance a start-up business were key factors in Atlas winning the NSF Grant.

Ali Kashani, CEO Atlas Nanotechnologies

Todd Smith is a dynamic, energetic, creative consultant. I have known Todd for over a dozen years. We worked together in financial analysis and new entity development at Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Florida. Todd works well with teams, he is an innovator in research and analysis and he writes and communicates very effectively. He goes beyond the tasks at hand. I highly recommend Todd for all types of consulting assignments from process analysis to cost improvements to new company development.

Paul Gruenther, MBA, Project Manager, Financial Consultant Blue Cross/ Blue Shield of Florida (colleague)

Todd and I worked on the review of university submitted commercialization and business plans for the State of Florida during the spring of 2008, and I found Todd to be an exceptional professional. He is thorough, results-oriented, clear thinking and focused on meeting the needs of clients. What I found most exceptional is his ability to listen, and then make the right constructive suggestions which provided clients with the strategic advice on the direction they needed to take to be successful. Todd offers a strong value proposition for any organization, firm, company or academic institution seeking management consulting services in the development of growth ventures.
