About

Econtrepreneur.com is a blog that looks at problems differently.  I use data and facts to confront thorny problems with solutions that tend to be unconventional.  My main focus is to help small businesses and start-ups, but I will stray into politics as needed, and as my interests carry me.

Joe Merrill, that’s me, is a partner and CFO at the Linden group of funds and Sputnik ATX in Austin, TX.

If you’re thinking, hey, this is just another way of writing the stuff in the column next to this, then yeah, you’d be right.  Perhaps someday I’ll make this page cooler with some kind of manifesto, but for now, I’m just pulling a Mojo Jojo.
