Gaining momentum

Its a cruel world out. You need to take very quick and careful steps otherwise you’ll roll down the mountain on which you’re trekking.

I’ve decided to work on more than 1 startup at a time and see which one succeeds. Since the underlying technology is the same in my startups therefore I can afford to have them run at parallel. None of my startups are funded at the moment. Therefore, I’m also making sure that we get some paid projects based on the technical capabilities that we have developed.

We are currently working on following lines: wordpress, jQuery/AJAX, PHP, Sencha, Scala/Lift, NoSQL and a whole lot of APIs: Facebook, Twitter, Geolocation, you name it. So if you have any projects related to these technologies like custom website development and mobile HTML5 apps development, we’d be happy to help you achieve your desired goals.

Currenlty, we are a team of 2 highly dedicated developers working on the stuff mentioned above. We are also looking for equity holder partners with the skill set: a graphics designer/developer aka desolper and a marketing professional to work on an exciting startup based on tabletPC B2B app 😉

I’d entertain applications at the email: sim4biz [at] gmail [dot] com

Startup brewing startup

Well, I like to be called an innovator. Entrepreneurship for me is a family thing. I wanted time to decide to take entrepreneurship as a career but fate plays its funny games some times.

This life, it seems, is too short for you to make a move from a well established career to a risky career of an entrepreneur. If you’re perturbed  by innovative ideas every now and then; I’d suggest you should try your luck in this line of business.

The name of the game is: key players at key positions. An innovative idea and a well-balanced team with brilliant past record is what angel investors and VCs seek. The current interest rate of 0.5% is proof enough that the pool of potential investors is huge. Seeking seed funding is not your goal.

You’re an innovator and you want to change the world with your inventions. Get a good idea and then pick a team or do it the other way around; its up to you. For the former adventure, there are plenty of places to seek a good team like Launch48 I recently attended.

I stumbled upon so many innovators and entrepreneurs at that event. I worked on somebody else’s idea and it was so much fun with you working on you own part and letting others work on their part.

I’m also looking for teammates for my startup slately; one techie/front-end guy and one business development guy are missing in the picture. I’m focusing all my energies on picking a super biz dev guy now as the startup I’m working on is majorly a sales business. I think, a person with primarily marketing but some sales experience with small/medium enterprise would be a good fit. Again, slately is a startup working on a tablet PC B2B application and we hope to go global in the coming years.

Things are moving fast and I’m talking to potential customers everyday. I hope to get to the point of signing a pre-order soon and from there life’d be a roller coaster ride!!!

Looking for partner(s) to join for techstars.org program

[Open Letter]

Well, I’ve been working on a hi-tech startup offering a tablet PC based B2B application for quite some time now. Since I don’t have any funding at the moment therefore I’m looking for funding as well as interesting people in my business. Fresh out of thedifferenceengine, I’m all too excited to apply for techstars but for that I need a partner with a good match of tech and entrepreneurial skills. Furthermore, I’m willing to offer founder’s equity for joining. [Remember, the deadline for techstars is 1-JUN-2010]

I’ve figured out the architecture and the technologies behind it: Flex4/Air2 as front end, Scala as backend and No-SQL (probably) as a data store. The application may also be available as SaaS offering, in a cloud, some time in the future.

For that I need someone who has 3+ years of experience in enterprise software development: Whether he has worked in .NET or Java, it doesn’t matter, but what matters is his ambition to learn to do enterprise application integration, preferably with CRM or payroll systems, in a far efficient and elegant manner. I mean doing it through RESTful concurrent Scala!

Scala is a new kid in the block but it has garnered great reputation after twitter and linkedin chose to migrate their core technology to this new JVM-based language. It supports elegant multi-core concurrency language features apart from providing a very clean syntax.

Another person, who may be of an interest to me, would be a Flex desopler (designer/developer) who is also an expert in designing UX (user experience) for consumer applications.

I myself have worked heavily on enterprise software and business intelligence projects too. Mostly, Java and Applet based technology but I kept myself updated with what’s going on out there and what’s hip throughout my career. I’ve been advising various startups and also coming up with business plans ever since I graduated. However, this is the first time I’m out seeking funding 🙂

So anyone with ambitions, authorization to work in UK and willingness to take the risks in order to change the world is welcomed!
