Long time coming - DC business getting legs
« on: May 19, 2011, 11:36:33 PM »
Damn, it's been a journey, but now we look good.

My old CEO, and old friend, got freed up by a biz failure that was none of his fault and has signed on as CEO - mover and a shaker and gets things done at biz level, really I just do tech.

Several hurdles left, but damn the biz plan is looking good, thank Eagle for that - word guru :)

Now to cash it up - intriguing, to get doors open we need around $4m and some operating capital - capital market can rarely be bothered with those small a numbers so going out for a rather larger number, and getting high amounts of attention, also getting a lot of client interest.

Should be about six to eight weeks, with a little vulnerability because our carrier diversity will take a little longer, but I do have a way around that.

Complete suite of Cloud - getting to hate that word, and I expect few clients will take it all at once, but that's just an ongoing sales job.

I'm tired, I'm actually sick at the moment, but it's worth it, tight knit group of friends intent on doing something new and exciting :)

I'm also, just a little, cash--strapped, but that's ok, it really has been worth it, because we all just want to do this, and it's not conceptual, we've tested, it works.

Fun and games, but what else would be interesting? :)

Cheers

I always hated 'cloud' and make fun of it every chance I get!

I was going to say good luck but I reckon just be good at it...work hard & get the results you deserve.

Been building DCs for a lot of years, even a containerised  one in KL about 12 years ago now, long before they became popular..

I do agree on "Cloud" Logic, I try to avoid using it but it's damned near impossible just at the moment.
