A self-taught coder, Char Genevier built and sold her first piece of web software while still in high school, and has been building companies ever since. She is currently consulting and exploring new startup opportunities from her home in Boulder, Colorado.

If you're interested in hiring her for a project or pitching her on an idea, contact her here.


Char discovered her love and talent for programming while in high school, and built her first company at the age of 15. 

She spent two years at Harvey Mudd College studying theoretical math before dropping out to devote her full attention to building SocialEngine, a white-label social networking platform. As its CTO, she bootstrapped SocialEngine to profitability, took the company through TechStars Boulder in 2011, and eventually sold it to the digital marketing agency Room 214.

Most recently, Char was the CEO and founder of The Cotery, a platform for artists and designers to design, pre-sell, and manufacture unique limited-run apparel without the upfront costs and complications of traditional manufacturing.

Char is now consulting and exploring new opportunities in the tech startup space. She also serves on the board of Blue Sky Bridge, and spends her free time skiing, hiking the front range with her dog Loki, and drinking good wine with good friends.


Char selectively takes on contract work and advisory positions, and will occasionally accept coffee meetings if you're based in the Boulder/Denver area. Reach out through the form below and she'll get back to you as soon as she can.
