Background

About Marc

I am a naturally technical person who has significant experience in technology, product management as well as broader business and finance experience. My resume includes being an engineer and product manager at a 5 person tech startup (which is still profitable), a financial analyst at a top wall street firm, and a product manager at two different market leading B2B organizations (in email marketing and ecommerce).

I am currently working on a few of my own ideas, one of which is an iPhone application to help people in NYC discover great oyster happy hours near them. Many bars and restaurants do not clearly publicize their schedules for happy hours, and my app aggregates that information and allows users to sort on a combination of distance and current happy hour availability, making it very easy to find happy hours that are going on or starting soon near their current location. That app is now available in the app store:

For this idea, I would be especially interested in potential co-founders that have experience in the hospitality and/or food services industries.

I generally believe in applying the principles of Lean Startup, and that direct customer contact is crucial at all times.
