“I believe AI will fundamentally transform the way we conduct business and commerce.  For that reason, we’ve adopted an “ALL-IN”  approach to studying and leveraging AI – allocating significant capital, resources, time, and mindspace to this new tech ever since ChatGPT was first released in 2022.  We dove in headfirst and let me tell you, the water is just fine.

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Sean Makulowich is the Founder and CEO of IdeaFire, an award-winning digital marketing and AI consulting and training firm based in downtown Bethesda that is celebrating a decade of innovation this year with its 10th Anniversary. For over 15 years, Sean has been consulting, training, and advising sales, marketing, and HR executives – providing and guiding them with deep insights and expertise on how to develop creative and effective marketing campaigns that drive their customers to take action. Sean is a compassionate leader who encourages his team and his business partners to foster creativity and further company growth through client success.

His consulting client base is extremely diverse and that’s exactly the way he likes it. Sean has worked with all types of businesses across many different industries – from local startups to global organizations like the IMF and Fortune 500 brands such as Volvo. A digital native, Sean studies the ever-changing digital landscape on a daily basis – from new and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, to the latest marketing, advertising and ecommerce tools, tactics, and growth hacking strategies.

Thanks to his father, Sean’s interest and background in computers and digital technology dates back to the creation of the World Wide Web in 1993, when he also started building his own computers and websites. Since they were launched, Sean has also been a software and hardware Beta Tester for META and Snapchat – two of the earliest adopters of AR, VR, and AI. The arrival of Generative AI and incredibly powerful tools like ChatGPT only added fuel to his burning obsession with technology and innovation. Immediately, Sean started exploring how he could leverage AI for his clients to accelerate customer acquisition, innovation, and growth. And he hasn’t stopped yet.

Beyond IdeaFire™, Sean loves working with other entrepreneurs, and thoroughly enjoys the work he does as a Mentor, Advisor, and Investor with Founder Institute – a world-renowned startup accelerator that has helped launch over 7,000 companies across 200+ cities and six continents.

Born and raised in Montgomery County, Sean is also very passionate about supporting his local community and the businesses that fuel it.  He has worked closely with The Greater Bethesda Chamber of Commerce since 2018, where he sits on the Board of Directors, Co-Chairs the Communications Committee, and sponsors the NextExecs Young Professionals Committee through his company, IdeaFire™.

Passion + Innovation = Results

“By combining our bespoke approach to fostering client growth and this wildly exciting and incredibly powerful new tech we call AI, we’re able to tackle large swaths of tasks with far greater efficiency, without sacrificing quality or accuracy.  I like that a lot because it frees up more of my time to spend on my favorite part of client projects; working with other humans.
