Are you currently involved in a startup?

Was involved in Platter from ideation to MVP launch as technical lead. Currently evaluating 2 new ideas to start dev in Feb 2013.

If yes, what industry is the startup in?

Platter was a food photo sharing service similar to FoodSpotting but for the home cook. The two ideas I'm currently looking: one is a very different look at social media analytics and the other is on event ticketing in the music industry.

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

Trying to persuade a CEO with a vision of his final product to realise the customers behaviour should be shaping the product not his own ideas/thoughts.

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

Your idea needs to have a native revenue stream built directly into the product because taking money from VCs is not something which on the whole should be endorsed/celebrated.

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

Yep - recently started discussing my startup experiences in my blog and would be willing to give speaking a go too - not sure I'd be any good though.


Technical co-founder of Bear Labs currently looking into two ideas to begin dev in Feb 2013.
