  • We’ve all heard and experienced crazy startup stories filled with extreme highs and lows, but not many this extreme. Rags to riches and repeat. A billion-dollar failed IPO. Multiple sold companies, including one to Microsoft. From magazine cover to cleaning drains and back again. Lawsuits. Resisting corruption. The dotcom bubble. The subprime meltdown. Banker conventions and Comic Cons. Getting forced out of companies with power plays. Calculated risks that appear crazed recklessness to some.

    When the stakes are high and the chips are down, how do you weather the storm? Having led a number of successful startups, most notably Yupi, Freshwater Systems, LoanSifter and now dodles, Craig Doriot walks you through his fascinating story, currently being made into an animated series as part of his soon-to-launch “” social creativity platform.

    Craig Doriot believes will help usher in a “Silicon Valley atmosphere” to the Fox Valley through cutting-edge technical innovation and the expected popularity of its social media platform. Craig takes you behind the scenes of his upcoming first Crowdfunding (Kickstarter) campaign, and also covers ongoing search for resources to align with its vision, from backers to promoters to the search for top local technical talent.
