About Ryan

Hello!
Below is a brief overview. More information about our team can be provided upon request.

The CEO (Ryan) handles all the business related tasks, but is slowly teaching himself to code. He has worked on multiple software projects, as well as having a lot of startup experience.

The CTO handles all programming related tasks: front end, back end, and data management, etc. His experience has allowed him to work with clients ranging from large institutions such as The University of Texas at Dallas, to small businesses and startups.

BOTH of us are very passionate about our project and believe in it and each other. We did not know each other before this project and have become good friends through this. We work on the project as much as we can. We are very collaborative and welcome all creative input.

COMPANY STATUS
Mesh is a social planning app that simplifies and organizes the planning process for any group activity, especially travel. Mesh will initially be available only for iOS and will be free to all users, but I would like to expand to Android and web platforms soon. We are currently in Alpha for the iOS version, which is available in the app store right now. Alpha is almost finished (more at www.mesh-app.co). After we reach this 100% mark and more to beta, we will work on some additional touch ups, then port to Android, and a version 2.0 for both platforms.

All of the branding, marketing planning, social media accounts, accounting, to market strategy, etc. is complete and ready to go. Marketing resources are on call and ready. (CEO is co-founder of a branding, creative, marketing, and strategy company that caters to pre-series A startups.)
