Michael Dermer

Founder& Chief Executive Officer, The Lonely Entrepreneur and The Dermer Group

Michael Dermer is an entrepreneur, speaker, lawyer and founder/author of The Lonely Entrepreneur. Michael is considered the founder of not only a company, but an industry – rewarding individuals for healthy behavior. Michael left a promising corporate law career to start IncentOne, the first company to provide rewards for healthy behavior. Michael’s harrowing journey through the financial crisis of 2008 and sale of his company led him to his current mission to empower entrepreneurs. Since selling his company, he created The Lonely Entrepreneur to help entrepreneurs turn their passion into success.

In addition to helping entrepreneurs, The Lonely Entrepreneur’s non-profit wing works closely with community, women, diversity and related social responsibility groups to empower those less fortunate with the entrepreneurial resources they need.

Michael’s mission is to unlock the potential of entrepreneurs worldwide by turning the passion and pressure we all feel into success.
