About Sean Johnson

My background

I am one of the founding partners at Manifold, a venture holding company in Chicago.

During the 12 years I was there we built a 70-person boutique enterprise consulting company, invested in over 25 companies with several exits, built an incubation practice, and raised over $50 million in funding.

I have spent 9 years teaching at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation program.

I'm the author of SIP, a playbook for teaching kids entrepreneurship and a #1 new release on Amazon in 2022.


These days I work with founders, business owners and senior executives to help them build intentional businesses and live intentional lives.

Through keynotes, group coaching, and online programs I equip you with the skills to create companies that can sustainably scale, and to deliberately construct lives of meaning and joy.
