She has consulted and advised dozens of enterprises at all stages: from tech startups to established manufacturers, lone innovators to large corporations. Her diverse body of work has launched financial services startups, digitally transformed service-based organizations, revealed critical market intelligence to multinational pharmaceutical companies, and positioned privately-held businesses to capture value through M&A.

Recently, her hands-on orientation helped launch and accelerate a number of startups, most notably Citta Corporation and Circle Squared Alternative Investments.
While serving as Vice President at The DAK Group, an investment bank specializing in middle market M&A, she identified key drivers of corporate value and positioned companies for strategic acquisition.
Early in her career, Ms. Bear helped lead Messinger Associates, a B2B marketing communications agency. She created integrated marketing strategies, including lead-generating PR campaigns — an original form of content marketing — for mid-sized companies.
Ms. Bear earned her MBA from the Stern School of Business at New York University, with a double concentration in marketing and entrepreneurial management. She is a proud graduate of the Johns Hopkins University with a BA in creative writing.
