About Mike Portanova

Mike is an attorney who passed the bar, got a cush job at a top-tier law firm, and promptly quit to move to Asia and pursue a slightly-less-cush-but-way-more-exciting career in the startup world. Since then, he’s been helping grow early-stage companies, including Greatist and, most recently, as Director of Growth at Atlas Obscura. If he’s being real, he’s a beer (IPA) and bourbon guy, but he thinks wine is hella classy (oh he’s also from California) so he’s into learning more about it. He loves Legos.
