About Wayne

I am running a startup in China. The team is devoted to providing mainstream families in China and America with innovative smart home solutions. We provide intelligentized basic electrical products (e.g. wall-mounted switches and receptacles) to construct an automatic network covering all the house. In the meanwhile, we provide customers with various kinds of plug and play functional components (e.g. sensors, music control panels and security devices) which are based on the concept of extreme modularization to satisfy the requirement of highly personalized and upgradable smart home application scenarios. You could visit https://angel.co/intellisn for more information.

We are going to finish our demo suitcase later this year. For various consideration, we want to set up an entity in the U.S., which is the reason why we want to find a co-founder there who:

1) is interested in joining a startup team focusing on IoT products and
2) has technical background (software, hardware, UX and etc.) and
3) could be a representative of us in the U.S. helping on corporate formation, funding raising stuff or some other things that need to be done in the U.S.

I look forward to having connection with you.
