Introduce yourself - tell us about your current position, company, interest and/or experience in the Freemium space, etc. No time for typing? LinkedIn or personal URL is fine!

I am the Founder of EverythingSquared (E²), which is an Innovation Lab based out of Honolulu, Hawaii. I work with Local Entrepreneurs to help their Ideas become a Reality. Being an Entrepreneur myself, I am currently a Technical Co-Founder of two Start-up's, one of which is still in Stealth, the other about to Launch. I am a Designer, UI / UX, HTML5/CSS3/JS with strengths in Product Development, Business Models, and Intellectual Property (Due Diligence and Filing). Before becoming an Entrepreneur, I worked as a Federal Contractor for the Department of Defense for 10 years (various IT Enterprise related roles).

Are you currently involved with a company/product that is using the Freemium business model? (If yes, please tell us about it. If not, please let us know your interest in joining Freemium SF/Bay Area Meetup.)

Yes. I believe that as a whole (across our Industry) the User's Expectations have already been set at Freemium being the Standard Distribution Model. Therefore, to be competitive in the Market, I believe that I must utilize the Freemium Model in some way shape or form for every Product I develop. The hard part will be, how to Monetize Freemium effectively.

If you have an opinion about the Freemium business/marketing model, please share it with us!

I would be glad to share my thoughts at the next Meetup!

Are you interested in speaking at the Meetup? Are there any people or companies you'd like to hear speak on pricing or business models? If yes, please send us an email freemteam@kachingle.com
