About Max Middleweek
I started my career in corporate, hated it, left and cut my teeth in entrepreneurship running an eCommerce business as a side hustle. From London, live in Melbourne. Love travel, love coffee, pragmatic and enthusiastic - a typical, easy going ENTP personality https://www.16personalities.com/entp-strengths-and-weaknesses
Going forward, I'm seeking a co-founder where we can really complement each other, bounce ideas, challenge and work stuff out, has a really keen eye for detail, process and structure (where we will cover both our blind spots) - but mainly that we get on well and click.
We'd be gearing up for a big venture in clean energy utilising coffee waste. It's a simple idea and one that has been executed very well in the UK but (as we are a little behind in oz) the market niche is wide open here. If you have a passion for energy, innovation, technology please get in touch and we can chat.
Next steps.. currently self-funding an MVP and looking to join a Melbourne based startup accelerator in the next 3-6 months (Feb-May 2018) and then raise further money on kick starter if required - in any case if this sounds like a great fit then give me a buzz.
