Why are you interested in our group?

I'm interested in meeting others in Anchorage with similar passions for start-ups and growing the economy here, while stimulating jobs. I'd love to help out on other's projects with what ever talents I can offer.

What are you looking for right now?

I'm looking to create a management team for a new manufacturing business here in Anchorage. I've approached UAA on my business idea and was received quite well by the Structural Engineering department. Prof. Scott Hamel would like to form a partnership between UAA and "my company", in order to receive grant money that will help produce a marketable product out of an ingeniously lightweight material that I have developed. What I need are the key people in a management team to represent my business in the UAA partnership. This will be the first time I have partnered with a university on bringing a product to market, and realize I don't have the experience in key management areas to make this work; so therefore am looking to build a management team that has the knowledge and experience base to make this successful.

What are good meeting times for you?

Mostly any right now.

What businesses have you been a cofounder with?

I developed a small LLC in Portland, OR in the hopes of bringing a product to market, but lacked the management team to persuade investors. I am looking to create a new business entity in Alaska that has the management necessary to succeed.

Do you like free drinks? :-)

Umm... Sure!!

Introduction

Early-Stage Entrepreneur with a passion for learning how to bring a product to market - without making to many blunders along the way... Look forward to meeting new people.
