About Janak

I graduated with an MBA in Entrepreneurship and Marketing from University of Missouri-KC in 2003. I am a bootstrap entrepreneur that began in commercial real-estate 10 years ago. I recently purchased and turned around a historic boutique hotel. Now being mostly a passive investor, I want to use the luxury of having some free time to co-found a tech startup. I have a lot of ideas but little experience in the technical/software development side of things, therefore I am looking for someone who can compliment me in that area.

What do I bring to the table?

I am kind of a jack-of-all-trades type especially coming from a background in small business. Bootstrap marketing, business development, networking and being super resourceful is what I would consider my greatest assets.
