I've held many positions in the high tech industry over the past 14+ years spanning computer hardware, software, and product development.

Michael Coates
They're my friends
I met Michael through Startup Weekend. He was the leader for two events and handed off to me. He also advised SW companies. Michael provides ... a mature, balanced approach to building businesses. He has a lot of experience, but balances it with nimbleness. I feel he will anchor any business he creates. I learned quite a bit from Michael in taking on Startup Weekend and wish that someone else have that same experience. I'm grateful for the chance to make that happen with my recommendation. Please contact me at if you need further details.

Jim IS a great entrepreneur, having founded an amazing local bookstore, which i've personally used. He's also driven to find the next thing. ... I met him at Startup Weekend and was impressed with his willingness to look beyond his current model towards new ideas and technology. He doesn't play thought experiments, tho- he builds with those things.

Todd chooses his projects carefully, but when he does, watch out! I have seen him seek out causes for which he is passionate and build a tea ... m of passionate people to help him build it out. Todd's got great business and communications skills. The right cofounder will match his passion and complement it with technical skills (design, development, engineering).
