About Jackie

My technical cofounder and I are Masters in Robotics grad students. I'm the business guy. We're looking for a 3rd co-founder for a robotics/connected device startup. The product is a flying security camera drone, with video and audio, and algorithms that run on the cloud, that syncs to the phone - so robotics, smarthome, IoT, mobile, and cloud computing spaces.

B2B and consumer device markets - first response in airports, hotel/apartment/parking garage security, shrinkage in retail; for consumers, to see and play with their pet that they miss so much, and see their home while they're away.

We have engineering talent and manufacturing leads; we need marketing/sales for both consumer presences (online forums, publications, blogs etc.) as well as exploring direct sales to businesses. Looking for a marketing guy on trial basis.

Traction: Offered accelerator investment by Silicon Valley accelerator; covered by a 1-2 dozen publications including TechCocktail, Crains Chicago, Gizmag, Drones Den, and more. Cancelled a Kickstarter that was able to get ~15 customers the first 4 days. Looking to relaunch in some weeks after marketing and community building.
