Paul Gollash

I have 14 years of experience building businesses as an operator, investor, and entrepreneur. I’m currently the CEO of Voxy, a venture-funded education technology company based in NY that I founded in 2010. At my core, I’m a highly-analytical sales guy, a recovering VC, and a tireless entrepreneur. I’m passionate about learning, education technology, and global brands. I sincerely believe that what the team at Voxy is doing will change the world.

Venture: Prior to starting Voxy, I was a venture investor for Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, the team that created Virgin Mobile, Virgin America, and Virgin Galactic. While there, I evaluated new business opportunities across a number of sectors, and helped conceive, fund, incubate and launch Virgin Hotels. I learned two critical lessons from Richard and Virgin: attack big markets and dedicate yourself to something about which you are truly passionate.

Analytics & structured thinking: Before Virgin, I was a management consultant with Booz Allen, where I advised senior executives in media and consumer-facing businesses on strategy and operations. Tough work, grueling hours, and lousy travel, but I still wouldn’t trade it for anything. I think better as a result of those years of 100-hour weeks, heavy data-analysis, and having to rapidly structure and solve inherently unstructured problems.

Sales: Earlier in my career, I spent three years in Madrid, launching a new retail business for GM Europe, and also helped start an import/export business in Santiago, Chile. In addition to learning the most valuable skill of any entrepreneur - sales - I also became bilingual and developed my lifelong passion for travel and language education. I speak fluent Spanish, passable Portuguese, and am really trying to learn Mandarin.
