Founded 2+ startups
I'm a passionate leader and social entrepreneur with drive who wants to move an early-stage open and disruptive civic platform and portal to next level. I'm a collaborative team player able to share decision-making. I have an unique, expert eye on what's happening and what's next in my sector(s). I already have a strong network and prospective consumers, buyers and accelerators asking to get involved. In addition to bringing a civic platform to this stage on a tight budget, I developed and now lead a consulting company (that also acts as lead generator). I have a PhD, have credibility and am beginning to be invited speaker in my field. Oh, and I love all things outdoors, maps, interactivity and design. Technical skills in GIS, data, maps, design, analytics.
I am seeking 1-2 civic-minded/social entrepreneurs who are equally passionate, ambitious, intelligent, skilled and collaborative. The top priority is finding 1 computer engineer with strong, clean programming skills to become CTO. Another priority is branding and marketing specialist to join team. Together, we will build and sell the best interactive outdoor civic platform. Together, we will create and deliver other products and services in a growing, mostly untapped tech market.
CTO: can take lead on build-out, programming, testing and team development. Has all or most of full stack, back/front, mobile and UI experience. Nice to have: outdoor and map geek.
CBO or CMO: leads brand dev, strategy and channels.
