About Doug

I'm an internet marketing specialist. I'm the co-founder of www.apredica.com which was sold to a publicly traded competitor for $4.25 million in under 5 years. Our team placed first in the 2006 North of Boston Business Plan Contest and 2nd in the 2006 WPI Venture Forum Business Plan Contest.

I'm looking to take an equity stake and part-time role in a new venture that has a substantial internet marketing component.

My ideal partner would be a technical specialist with a great concept who needs help with the marketing end. This could be anywhere in the range from starting from the ground up, building a business plan and getting investors, to marketing for an up-and-running startup trying to get a beachhold.
