I’m making a list and checking it twice….

Posted: July 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

Part of my work involves mentoring start-up companies. This involves reviewing business plans, financial forecasts, advising funding plans etc. etc. But a large part of it is making introductions for these start-ups to people in my network. This could be for people who have experience in a certain area that might help the start-up to improve their planning but quite often it’s also introductions to people who can carry out work for a start-up as they more often than not do not have all the required skills in-house.

One of the regular requirements is for good web developers and designers. People who can build a solid back-end to spec, people who can make it all look good but also people who are used to working with start-ups and don’t mind doing a bit of hand-holding in the process.

I already have a number of people like this in my network but some of them are busy and I also want to expand my database. So if you have the skills & experience outlined above please leave your details as a comment to this post. Please do not forget to include a link to some examples of your work.

Thank you.
