They're my current cofounder
Michael and I, along with one other person, have been working on our own start-up since October of 2012. Michael is our acting CEO and has p ... roved to live up to the title. His strong leadership has brought us through several competitions and we've recently just locked down our first investor. Michael is a passionate individual ready to take on the next challenge.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Michael through a business startup competition we were both in and I can honestly say his perseverance is i ... mpressive. He's a great team leader & founder; and from what I can tell has a fantastic ability to leverage resources. A true entrepreneur through & through and I look forward to seeing him around the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

I met Michael as part of the accelerator program at GR Current. I was impressed by him and his team and what they'd achieved at such a young ... age. His fearless and determined approach took a good idea and turned it into a completely different, viable product with real demand. I'm glad to have Michael in my network and look forward to watching everything he's going to achieve.
