About Bob

Does the idea of starting with only an idea and turning that into a reality sound appealing? Do you have the technical acumen to build an app prototype in a few weeks? Are you OK with delayed compensation now for half of a company and a potentially bigger payout later? If this sounds like the opportunity you've been waiting for, I'd like to talk with you.

About me: I'm a data analyst/market research consultant who has helped companies develop and launch products for over 10 years. I'm currently doing so for a company in the financial services industry. I also code on the side and just launched my first app called Fripple: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fripple/id1098058411. As you can see, I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination. That's where you come in.

About You: I'm looking for a tech savy co-founder to help launch my next app. Are you an iOS programming savant (Andriod would be a plus), who 1) can take a complex idea and turn it into a live product, 2) can work collaboratively, and 3) has the discipline/track record to see a plan through to the end. That's about it. I really don't care where you went to school, or even if you have, how old you are, what gender you are, or nationality (as long as you can work in the US). If you can show you have the skill set and drive, then I'd like to chat. The only other prerequisite is that you currently have a job or some other means to pay the bills. This is a project with no funding and probably won't until we have v1.0 up and running, get some actual users, and can take the product on a roadshow.

The plan: Set up a meeting to 1) pitch my idea and initial plan with you and if you're interested, 2) see if you feel you have the skill set and time to make it happen, and 3) see if we'd make good teammates/co-founders.

Look forward to hearing from you
