“Our only security is our ability to change.” –JC Lilly

Michael Hageloh spent 22 years with Apple, starting as a systems engineer before becoming a rainmaker, surviving the company’s near-bankruptcy, living the return of Steve, and premiering the “i” products.

Since leaving Apple’s band, he has taken decidedly different gigs—jam sessions if you will—with entrepreneurial startups in need of rhythm, story, and performance, including modular electronics phenom littleBits.

Michael has a deep background in academia and fundraising, having served as the director of special projects, a senior director of development, a capital campaign officer, and an event judge for Startup EDU, powered by the Kauffman Foundation.

He has generated nearly $1 billion in revenue.

A onetime disco drummer, Michael is a high-spirited speaker, a beat-ahead thinker, and a charismatic mentor. He is currently a chief development officer in higher education and consults globally on orchestrating rhythms for sales, artful marketing, and institutional advancement in higher education.

“Remember, this show we call life is not a rehearsal, so make every performance count.” –michael hageloh
