About Eddie

I have developed a new type of technology based on Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) that has B2B potential. I have had conversations with the largest company in this market (and others) and they are interested in our technology as it can outperform the current options on several key points. We are now trying to build some prototypes with the goal of demonstrating the technology's potential.
I also have an ongoing dialogue with some VCs who reached out to me online.

Summary
Proprietary technology
Large and growing market (predicted to be worth around $400 million in 2016, and $8.5 Billion by 2022 - up from $131 million in 2010)
Interested customers
A project with real environmental, social and educational benefits

Looking for people in any city who are interested in hardware development, microfabrication and/or manufacturing. For me, personality is equally important as skills. A good working relationship is essential

I am good at coming up with new ideas and getting around problems to make these ideas work. I have developed a few ideas into something more concrete, and I understand that the original idea is just the first step in a long process. I have a good understanding of what it takes to build on the initial idea - I am not just the "ideas guy" looking for the nuts and bolts people. I understand and respect the engineer's role.
I am also good at business development - getting the project in front of people, and bringing together the necessary threads.
