About Matt

I have a product, I have several committed clients (Raycom Media, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Gannett, Weather Channel), and I have an app developer (based in Chicago). But to secure seed capital (IP protection, etc.) the VCs I've met require that I have a local technical partner "that has a passion for the media". My product: I have created a new media app called Eyewitness. Eyewitness is the first mobile tool ever created by professional journalists, and it puts the power of the media in the palm of your hand. The app empowers witnesses at the scene of a news event to capture broadcast-quality video, conduct a relevant interview, and self-report what they experienced... and then instantly transmit that exclusive news content to broadcast and digital newsrooms. Eyewitness is the fastest news capture tool ever created. I'm looking for a committed technical partner who can commit 15-25 hours a week for a modest salary and equity.
