About Vlad

Here is where we are now - http://uniguide.me.

I believe learning about where you travel makes your trip a truly life-changing experience. Audio tours are one of the best ways to learn while travelling, and users should access tours as easily as they can share a picture for their Facebook friends. That is what we do - make audio tours accessible for as many people as possible, via our mobile apps and content management systems. No more "download mp3 files on your player and print the pdf map", or "install our app with our audio tour for our museums (only)", or "rent our handheld audio devices at the visitor center at 100 Main Street between 11 AM and 3 PM excluding weekends and holidays"!

I have seed funds, time, business skills (honed by MBA degree and 20+ years of work as hired finance manager in 6 industries and 3 countries), some computer skills (VBA, MS Office, ImageMagick, GIMP, Audacity, FFmpeg, Lame, etc.) and an aspiration to create a great business generating value for its customers, shareholders, and employees.

What I lack are accent-free English, networks in the US in the industry (travel, museums, city halls, state governments, zoos, parks, etc.) and mobile and web development skills. Therefore, I am open to motivated co-founders for both business development and IT who share my view and see the market opportunity for that business.
