Adam Kearney is a serial entrepreneur and community organizer. He is the Founder and CEO of Propsboard, which helps companies celebrate employees by broadcasting recognition to their office TVs. Formerly, he was the Founder and CEO of The Connectome - a music intelligence platform with over 15,000 musicologists contributing data. The Connectome was acquired in October 2015.

Outside of building businesses, Adam has always been an active member of his community. Most recently, he was on the leadership board of Philly Startup Leaders where he co-founded a Startup Bootcamp, as well as the PSL Accelerator.
