About Mike

I have a good idea and the experience in startup environments and the contacts within the industry to set up channel partner agreements.

I would need someone with the ability to manage data center colocation customers and set up virtual servers for clients, and perhaps another person that wants to invest or raise money in a future phase- we won't need significant amounts of capital unless we want to run ad campaigns or get into buying a lot of stuff. I like to keep things simple and transparent- my last few partners were too old school and slow, we had done business for many years, it's just time for some new blood and some sweat equity-

I need people that can write well in English, or Spanish, Mandarin, French would be good. It's global business and the space is really hot right now.

I've done this before in the past and had great success with it before the concept really took off- this is a cloud compute play without a lot of risk. Looking for now.
