Allie DanzigerCEO and Co-founder, Ampersand Professionals

I have a passion for helping ambitious people succeed. I started, and later sold, one of Texas' top marketing agencies, Integrate Agency, where I was lucky enough to work with, and learn from, some of the most talented innovators, designers, thinkers and doers I’ve ever met; the chance to lead a company that has generated over $15MM in total revenue, employed over 150 people, and helped over 600 clients grow.

My new venture, Ampersand, applies my >10,000 hours of lessons learned in hiring, managing and mentoring so many employees and interns in my 12 years running Integrate. I am now dedicating my time to eliminating the skills gap from higher education to employment, and democratizing access to internship placement and mentorship, while also helping companies run successful internship programs.
