Background

About Mark

I am a veteran of several tech startups (non-software) and am looking to start a company of my own. I have programmed and created large systems and applications but have little experience with the current languages and applications. I am looking for someone who would be able to create a beta version to present to investors. I believe a functional version could be created fairly quickly (MVP) and could result in enough revenue to sustain a couple people who wold then be able to expand the MVP for a wider audience with increased functions and profit growth.

My idea is related to music and would be used by consumers, independent business people and businesses in the entertainment/leisure industry. I have a business model and a estimate of revenues based on USA release (to get started) and the idea would be available to use in other countries.

I have a business plan/presentation currently under review by a local incubator for possible interest in funding. I recently attended the FounderDating meeting in Altadena and am following the advice of a seasoned entrepreneur I met at the event.

I am looking for possibly 1-2 other people to be co-founders and am looking for people with Apps/Mobile Website/Web Development and DB/Query design skills.

I do have a PowerPoint presentation that provides much greater detail and will gladly share it with you and answer any questions you have in person.
