About Brian

I'm juggling a few ideas which are gaining some traction. The problem is that everyone is looking for a founder who has had an exit. I'd like someone who has had success taking a product from user 1 to 100,000. The app I'm working on right now is sort of wanelo meets yikyak IRL. I'm a big believer in the power of local information and this app exploits that trend.

I'm a former VC and research analyst and I used to review 1,000 business plans a year so I have a sense of what they are looking for in an idea. My idea is simple, easy to use and tells the story itself in 30 seconds. That's the kind of deal that people want to hear.

The ideal partner at this point would be a media savvy retail insider that could help spread the word about the app.
