Kurt Wilkin is a gifted connector—of dots, ideas, and people. For the past 30 years, he has advised high-growth companies, starting his career with Ernst & Young, and today in his roles as cofounder and visionary of HireBetter and managing partner of Bee Cave Capital. He is a serial entrepreneur with multiple successful exits and has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and CEOs build their companies. Kurt has called Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas home his entire life and proudly claims to have “Redneck, Cajun, and Hillbilly rolled into one beautiful package.” That might explain his natural BS detector. As you’ll see in "Who’s Your Mike?," his plain-spoken, approachable style helps cut through the clutter and delivers lessons for fellow entrepreneurs that they can apply—right away. He is the father of three active boys who don’t let him take life too seriously, and he resides in Austin with his wife, Carrie, who didn’t think he could focus long enough to get the grocery list right, much less write an entire book!
