His goal is to de-mystify and democratize the business intelligence and data mining industry, make the information actionable and easily accessible to decision makers.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am a strong believer in entrepreneurial spirit and life-long learning that stimulate critical thinking and innovation.

My product concept and beta release software have been validated in the marketplace with paying pilot customers. My past experience and strong professional network have allowed me to build a long pipeline of potential clients for my software analytic tool.

As the founder and CEO, I wear many hats: management, business development, accounting, marketing and sales, product development, legal/Intellectual property protection, etc.

My strength is the ability to see all the pieces of puzzle that are needed to build a successful team and company, and execute the tasks with persistance and flexible/open-minded framework.

As an Advisor

--Offer any assistance and advice based on my experience.
--Make introductions and connections to others that could help
--Looking for passion and excitement in a startup. Not just talkers but doers.

Jeffrey Stout
They're my advisor
Patrick has worked for one company for nearly 20 years before deciding to start his own venture. Starting Prenostik is not something he did ... on a whim or without thorough analysis. His commitment to his business comes from years of experience knowing that his solution is uniquely positioned for the marketing/advertising industry and is something that that industry will find to be transformational. Beyond the technology which is core to his business, Patrick is a seasoned professional who exhibits excellent leadership behaviors and communication skills.
