About Chicke

I formed Solutionz in 1996. I have a proven track record as a game-changing technologist, creating innovative multi-channel solutions for clients and for my own companies and have done advisory services for some of the top investment companies, Fortune 100 and 500 companies, as well as smaller, entrepreneurial ventures.

I build companies and have invested over $1.2m on my own, plus I have raised $6m in investment capital. I'm recognized as a game changer and have a weekly radio show of the same name. My investment actions reflect my commitment to innovation and my principles.

The venture where I am looking for a co-founder is Solutionz Technologies, a venue and event based trip planning tool company. We are a B2B company seeking to change the way that trips are planned.

I value intellectual curiosity, innovation and thought leadership. I am looking for partners and co-investors that share that passion, particularly in the travel/events industries and location based services.

My faith and courage is core to my identity, as is giving back and mentoring others to discover their radical sense of purpose.

In 2007 I pioneered a new technology that shifts the travel booking process from city centers and airports to the place or event where people are traveling. In 2Q16 we will launch the next generation of that platform. It will take companies from simply having a Contact Us page to having an intelligent Visit Us page. Think AddThis™ for Travel.

Whether in my own ventures or those of my clients, my business focus is growth – 360-degree growth in both corporate and entrepreneurial environments. Growth is achieved by ditching the status quo and by listening to the front lines. They know the customer.

The ideal partner in this business is a self-starter that would love the opportunity to capitalize on a business that is already well on its way to success, but that brings to the table the ability to both open doors at a very senior level in our target markets and can close strategic channel partner deals as well.

While bringing capital to the table is not a pre-requisite, a greater share of equity will be available if there is a combination of cash and sweat equity. I believe there will be funding for market competitive salaries within 6 months.
