Founded 2+ startups
I am an entrepreneur, an experienced marketer, and a traveler with almost 20 years of experience with startups and corporate world. I have had the privileged to work for various start-ups and some incredibly large (billion dollar+) companies. I have been actively involved in founding companies, building brands, business development, and launching many innovative products. I have been part of 4 startups with 2 failures and 2 exits, currently working on my 5th startup.
Here is the latest on my most recent startup: http://www.cbs8.com/story/31440477/ait-has-acquired-washington-dc-based-startup-tripli
Passions and Project:
I am passionate about empowering people, building companies, traveling and exploring the world. I am currently working on a travel tech startup and looking to build an amazing team. The good news is that we are in development and most of the work in terms of Market research, Market Validation, Business Requirements, Financial Plans, UI/UX Designs, has been done.
Our market validation phased produced hundreds of users that are waiting for the product. Our social media channels produced 45,000+ followers within 8 weeks. We recently beat several startups and were invited by AOL to their incubator/accelerator. Our offices are now located on the AOL campus in Sterling, VA. We were approached by some big name companies in the travel space and we are discussing various partnerships.
What am I looking for:
I am looking for people who believe in the vision, in the product, are level-headed, can tolerate pressure and are committed to go all the way at least for the next 6-12 months. Keep in mind we have done most of the work already and it has taken months of sweat, blood and money. You will be walking in at a time where your expertise will really help launch the product seamlessly and then scale it accordingly.
This is not for you if you are looking for a free ride. If you understand the grind that is startup, work hard and play hard, honest and a standup kinda person, this could be a lot of fun. I can train people on certain tools and tactics but I can't teach work ethic. It has to come from within. I am looking for someone who I can develop a very strong chemistry and trust with. People who are not afraid of trying new things and going the extra mile. People who are serious about success. If you think you have what it takes to execute an idea, raise money and launch something amazing, we should talk.
