Ada Nielsen is a consultant (PeregrineMaven Group) who analyzes and evaluates market opportunities for start-ups, then develops launch strategies that are practical, tuned to the market, and actionable. These skills are also useful for increasing market presence for current companies.

She also worked for a public company in the finance department, valuing prospective investments, leading the development of the company-wide strategy, and producing the presentations for Wall Street.

Other experience includes teaching college chemistry (when she was a college dean) and theoretical physical chemistry at Dartmouth Graduate School. She earned an A.B. in Chemistry at Wellesley College, and an MBA from Chicago Booth Graduate School of Business with a concentration in Finance and Marketing.
