How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Experience, Tenacity, Relentless Pursuit of Excellence.

I want to work with entrepreneurs who are willing to put up their own money. Once you invest a single dollar of your own cash, you will think differently about the business. Time is valuable, but cash is king. I have invested in every company I have started or worked with.

I can play all roles to get a company going, except leading engineering. I expect you to be the best at what you do and I will do what I do best and we will make a real run at building a business.

As an Advisor

I will push you to think through your ideas, refine them, and then refine them again. I will cons

Think Abe is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Lauren Keeley
We worked together at Martini Media Inc.
Abe is a great entrepreneur because he knows how to assemble to right people at the right place and right time to get a task completed. One ... issue I have come across during my time at startup companies is that there can be a lot of intelligent people in the room but with out people who know how to organize, complete tasks and find resources. This is Abe's gift he can pick out the right people in the room, assemble them and accomplish any task put in his path. Abe just needs to be given the reigns and the right tools and he can build and finalize anything.
Nate Mihalovich
They're my current cofounder
Abe is already a successful entrepreneur many times over. He's extremely motivated and passionate about building products and companies. Wit ... h an impressive set of skills honed over many years of working in tech, Abe knows how to manage employees, lead a team, and inspire others. It's no wonder people love working with him, and that his last company is still considered groundbreaking.
Joao Oliveira Simoes
We worked together
Abe is one of the finest managers I know. He knows what he wants done but will allow his team the space of creativity to constructively cont ... ribute to the total goal. He is able to listen to his team when necessary and to make the big calls when is appropriate. I would definitely work with Abe on another project again as his professionalism and good natured entrepreneurial spirit makes the projects a success. He possesses the ability to ride the long, obstacle-ridden wave of product development with grace, patience, skill and a careful attention to every aspect of a product. Abe is a rare in the way that he manages the internal development of a product and his team with as much skill as its interaction with the world. He is an awesome entrepreneur.

He underst ... ands the inner workings of how to make ideas come to fruition through a driven and focused personality. Throughout his entrepreneur journey, Abe has been very thoughtful, considerate, and fair with the people has and continue to cross paths with in life. I highly recommend taking the opportunity to meet Abe McCallum!

I worked for Abe and I can say he is a total entrepreneur. He always thinks ways to improve things and he has new ideas to start business ev ... ery day. What I like from him it is that he knows how to challenge you and at the same time he is always there when you need his help to keep going on your duties! Another good thing that he has it is his teachering skills, being around him it is always an oportunity to learn. I worked once for him and I can not wait to do it again.

With a tremendous positive attitude, willingness to stret ... ch himself, never backing down from a challenge, and all around great person, he was a born entrepreneur. We have also built an incredible company together and as a fellow founder I would call on him anytime to be a fellow founder.
