Are you currently involved in a startup?

Yes - a one person startup based in London.

If yes, what industry is the startup in?

Enabling discovery of digital resources. through the generation of tagging metadata.

What is the biggest challenge you've faced taking a startup from concept to market?

Implementation of prototype which has involved learning to code (Ruby on Rails).

Describe your startup philosophy in a sentence (if you have one)

DIY which has the advantage of low burn rate and enables me to take the very long view as it is a new market that is developing, but does require discipline in focusing on exactly where the value is and doing nothing else.

Would you be willing to talk at a meetup about your experiences or area of expertise?

Not yet ready to do a presentation, but would love to chat to other members of the group.


Hi - very interested to learn and share experiences from the perspective of a one person Internet startup.

What Peter J. is saying about this Meetup Group
