Event Details

Ed Mitzen, Fingerpaint Marketing

Appropriately referred to as the serial entrepreneur, Ed Mitzen has built four marketing companies totaling over $200 million in combined revenue. Ed is currently building his fourth company, Fingerpaint Marketing. Fingerpaint is a full-service advertising agency with 82 employees and nearly $16 million in annual revenue. Before forming Fingerpaint, Ed founded Palio Communications, an advertising and communications agency in Saratoga Springs, NY. During the rise of Palio, Ed's leadership and business acumen brought the agency from a local five-person shop to a twenty-five-million dollar annual company with nearly 175 employees. Ed is a frequent lecturer on the topics of advertising and marketing at several top colleges and universities, including the University of Rochester and Skidmore College. He is also an active member of the local community, serving on the board of directors of various not-for-profit organizations including The Hyde Collection, Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), Union Graduate College, Double H Ranch, and formerly the Saratoga Care Foundation and the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs. He resides in Saratoga Springs with his wife Lisa and his children Nick (17) and Grace (14). He also has a daughter Emily (19) who is a sophomore at NYU.

Hosted By

E. Patrice Perkins, Director of Startup Grind Albany

Army brat and world traveler, Patrice and her family traveled extensively, residing in Frankfurt, Berlin and Stuttgart, Germany; Hawaii and several less exotic locations within the United States during her father’s illustrious 29 year military career. A propensity for the limelight was first revealed when Patrice thoroughly routed her second grade competitors, garnering a much-coveted role as one of Santa’s Reindeer Keepers and appearing live on the German public access show, “Potpourri". Upon her return to the United States, however, Patrice was dismayed to discover an under-appreciation for her artistry, when in 8th grade she unsuccessfully auditioned for a certain renowned performing arts school in New York City. In spite of, or perhaps because of, that failed audition Patrice set out to prove the critics wrong. Realizing that words are her forte, over the years she has parlayed her gift for people engagement into a myriad of situations in a variety of industries: event planner; paralegal; executive assistant; director of marketing; writer; editor; proofreader; advancement researcher; narrator and producer of documentaries; workshop presenter; poetess, and one of her most favorite posts, television and radio interviewer. A newish and thrilling role for Patrice is as philanthropist, having just founded a memorial scholarship fund in honor of her mother, Margaret “Peggy” Perkins that will benefit its first recipient in the fall of 2014.
