About Brent

I am a very driven and creative person that has started up 7 different companies here in Canada in a variety of industries (non-technical), all bootstrapping savings from companies and rolling them into the next venture. I am currently running 3 companies but will be wind down 1 and hand 2 off as we get the team in place for this venture. I am willing to bootstrap this new venture with $100,000 (more investments will be needed from Angels and VCs over time) but need to align the proper team first. The project is called E.Volv, and it will be the brainchild with a mixed parenthood of LinkedIn, Adecco, Indeed and Toptal; using the best attributes of each to disrupt the education and hiring industries. The pitch deck can be sent to qualified prospective partners.

Current needs
*Co-founders - 1-2 full-stack developers with lots of ruby on rails experience.
*All cofounders will get a significant equity stake
*Also will be looking into neuro - scientists, HR professionals so if your network includes these, that's a bonus but not necessary.
*Connections to coding bootcamps like hack reactor, general assembly are a huge asset as well
*Last, it would be great if you are open to traveling as I am current ly looking at accelerators and analyzing the best fit and rollout strategy- (Berlin, Copenhaggen, London, Sydney, SF, Seattle, Vancouver) all dependent on easiest market entry point

I'm looking to build a product that will leave our legacy on the world, I hope you can join me.
