About Bill

Below is my bio, however this is what I'm looking for in technical cofounder. I never give up, you should be the same. I'm loyal to the bone, you should be the same. I make shit happen, you should be the same. If you can build a bad ass product, I can fund it, raise money into it and see a vision for long term. I've been doing this a long time and missing the technical partner to work with me long term in charging the world. If you hate biz dev, I got your back. If you hate dealing with investors, I got your back. If you need a BIG vision partner to clear the path ahead of you, I'm the guy. My job as founder is to stay out of your way and sniper anyone or anything that gets in your way. If you like flying robots and crazy travel, then this deal is for you. If you are a fan of Richard Branson and the Virgin Brand, then get ready because we are going Richards home on Necker Island where you will expand beyond dreams. Check out this link.

Bill Kimberlin is a serial entrepreneur with a passion for starting companies in front of emerging markets. By his junior year in college, he had started and was running three companies. At the age of 27 years old, both Forbes and US News & World Report recognized Bill as a young entrepreneur with multiple companies and a passion for starting them. During this time, Bill's passion for learning and meeting peers led him to found the Nashville Chapter of the Entrepreneur's Organization, which is now the 3rd largest chapter in the world.

Kimberlin co-owned a recording studio on Nashville’s music row that was host to Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder and many other artists that helped Sixteenth Ave Sound achieve a number two market share before being sold. With the vision that "The internet will change the world", Bill sold all three companies and headed west to pursue the dot COM gold rush in the mid-90's. After a few wins, he doubled down a few too many times and gave it all back in March of 2000 when the internet bubble popped.

Bill returned home to Nashville with the new skill set of online consumer marketing and started Medx Publishing's flagship property, Medicare.com. He grew Medicare.com brand to an elite status and super brand prior to being sold to eHealth, Inc (NASDAQ: EHTH) in 2014. It was a deal that recorded the 8th largest “pure domain” name sale in history and left 100% of the customers and revenue of Medx Publishing untouched.

Kimberlin's latest startup venture is 500below, the first peer-to-peer “on demand” network of drone pilots supporting drone pilots in need of technical support or feature training.

Family, Friends, Fun, Adventure Travel, Adventure Sports, Triathlons, Skydiving, Horseback Riding (Western), Wakeboarding, Snowboarding, Mentoring Entrepreneurs and Piloting Drones are among his favorite topics and activities.
