Product Analyst
Fourth Frontier

Fourth Frontier is a start-up in the business of making smart health wearables. The product launched on Oct 31st, 2019 at the New York City Marathon. Given the limited resources, it was all hands on deck and I donned the various hats that come with running a business from market research, fund raising, user research, usability testing. I also developed the vision and communication strategy for the company.
