About MLap

I am a marketing and advertising professional, with over 20 years experience working in prominent advertising agencies and on and with major consumer brands such as Coca-Cola, Hershey's, Walmart, Walgreens, Target, and many others.

I have significant experience in the retail sector, and the business plan I've crafted is focused on establishing a series of at-shelf signage systems that can communicate to shoppers, combat showrooming, offer promotions and discounts, connect with consumers' mobile devices, be a conduit for self-service checkout, and even manage inventory for the retailers. It is the type of service that, as a marketer working with CPG companies, we wished existed. But nothing was previously available. However, I believe that the technology has reached a price point to make it feasible, and that major retailers are looking for ways to inject more technology, with a purpose, in to their stores.

I have the business plan along with the contacts, marketing, and sales experience to make this work, but not the programming skills. I need someone to partner with me to make this business a reality.
