About John Habbert
After completing a bachelor’s degree at Case Western Reserve University, and an MBA at the University of Michigan, Habbert began his career at Procter and Gamble in Cincinnati. During a period of twelve years, he rose through the ranks of the organization with a variety of positions in both manufacturing and product development. With a desire to apply his large company experience to a smaller company setting, Habbert left P&G to join Crane Connectors, a bankrupt start-up company. He led the company to profitability within two years, with a staff of over fifty employees and an international customer base.
Since 1998, Habbert has been an active small business consultant and Angel Investor; a Shareholder in more than twenty-five small companies, and currently Board Member of six. He is an active member of the Queen City Angels and is Director of the QCA First Funds, three small, state-sponsored technology validation funds that make seed investments in very early-stage companies.
