How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Beyond my 20+ years of Software industry experience in Product and Sales, I've spent the last 12 months building my company SocialThreader from an idea to being deployed on major brand sites. As CEO, I have managed all aspects of running this Startup, including getting selected to a top notch Start-up accelerator in the country, raising Angel funding, Sales, Marketing, Financials and Product development. In addition, my network include some of the top Digital Marketing minds in the country, top VCs in Silicon Valley and connections within Google and YouTube. More than anything, I am extremely tenacious and have seen both highs and lows of running a Start-up.
