Are you a sales professional with a great idea for a tech startup?

You’re probably wondering:
- How much will this cost me?
- Where should I start?
- How do I find a partner/co-founder?
- How do I not give up my equity?
- How do I bring my vision to reality?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get your idea out of your head and down on paper to share with programmers, partners, investors, etc WITHOUT giving up valuable equity so early in the process? I have a track record of helping sales professionals turn their tech startup dreams into reality. Curious to see if we’d be a good fit to work together, let's chat!

Check out the value...

As a non-technical founder, I first connected with Andre around my need to sift through and understand all of the information coming to me from my developers. Andre quickly gave me an initial filter for this information by challenging me to tie each piece of information to a measurable business need. From there, during our meetings Andre helps me to not only understand the information, but also to prioritize the decisions that I have to make. Read More

Through these conversations, Andre has given me more of my most precious resource as a founder - time. Each of the projects that my development team undertakes now is better scoped from the beginning to reduce unnecessary or low-impact development work. Additionally, I have been able to avoid several potential development “rabbit holes” that would have had a negligible impact on the business, even if they had been successfully launched. Because of this, I now also have more “head space” and profits to focus on continuing to grow the company.

If you are a non-technical founder, Andre’s perspective from his experience across multiple companies has provided me with the skill and confidence to lead my development team more successfully. Read Less

Greatly recommend for any consultation and development needs.

Working with André is refreshingly easy and extremely valuable to anyone with too many great ideas needing developed. Having plenty of vision was not our issue; how to make that a reality from a technical standpoint without incurring loads of debt (financial and technical) was. That’s where André really came through for us! His ability to ask the right questions regarding our vision followed by his recommendations (which made total sense) really put us at ease and I would highly recommend you start here before jumping into development.
