Background

About Andy

I'm not interested in advising or networking - that's a distraction from building Fidotek. I'm looking for one or more EQUITY-BASED co-founders to launch and scale a new high tech pet products & services startup. I've been building companies in Silicon Valley and elsewhere since circa 1980. Focused & fast-tracking. No consultants, please - only interested in building a team with those with skin in the game ...

Status:
- Hardware product is undergoing another iteration of industrial design. Then, it's off to engineering & integration of piezo electronics, Bluetooth and power module design.
- Database structure is complete, database and analytics coding to begin within the next 2-3 weeks.
- Web structure is complete - the "product" will launch a.s.a.p. as a free software service to build membership prior to offering the physical product and subscription service. Launch perhaps by September. This will also validate / allow debugging of the DB & analytics prior to integrating into the hardware and mobile app.

Needed:
- solid go-to-market strategy (may include crowd-funding), development partnerships with high traffic pet-related sites (1 million or more monthly uniques), help develop price points, product / service configuration and long-term growth strategy.
