About Gerry

Where I am: As a residential remodeling contractor for 30 years, I started designing a software program for remodelers based on frustrations I was having in the business.

The product: The program is fully functional, market ready, Lots of sweat equity and testing has gone into making this product what it is: very functional and an efficient product for the remodeler. This May I celebrated my 40th year in the trades, and have been working full time for the last 3 years in product development, help videos, and trying to get the message out.

Looking for: a sales specialist and marketer to help find paying users. I would entertain an equity arrangement for services, provided that they are really what we need. The complete product needs an experienced eye, and one that can comprehend where we are in the startup community, and help develop a unified message to our user base.

Past startup experience would be helpful, but good sales and marketing knowledge would be a must.
