The Conquer Accelerator announces today that Ryan Jankovic—President and CEO at both Enterprise Sales Consulting, LLC and CleanStart Surgical—is joining the startup accelerator program’s ranks for its third summer cohort.

As entrepreneur-in-residence, Jankovic’s leadership in sales, marketing, management, and business development will serve the soon-to-be selected startup teams, supporting their progress and, ultimately, their success.

“Our EIRs provide invaluable services to our startup companies,” said Tom Stewart, Conquer Accelerator’s program manager. “Ryan’s experience and deep insights into product development and customer acquisition are what make him a perfect mentor for our upcoming teams.”

A Western Michigan University graduate and Michigan State University alum, Jankovic launched his career at Stryker Corporation, where he was part of the innovation team. During his time at Stryker, Jankovic participated in the launch of several innovative products. He was instrumental to the process of two acquisitions, as well as set records for product sales.

“Conquer Accelerator is an exceptional program,” said Jankovic. “Coming on board as entrepreneur-in-residence means I get to meet new entrepreneurs, help them refine their ideas and business models, and watch them succeed.”

Conquer Accelerator’s third season will run June 4th, 2018 through August 17th, 2018.
