You are about to take the most important step...the first one. An idea is worthless unless you have the team that can bring it to market - which is actually more important than the idea itself. It takes over a dozen steps to successfully bring an idea to market and they are all equally important. From concept design, UI, UX, development to sales and marketing. Poorly execute on any of of these steps and the best idea can crash and burn.
We understand these requirements and will help you make sense of the process, step by step - starting with: Is my idea cool or....well, dumb? There are some simple but important questions that can help qualify an idea - which is where we'll want to start. After that, game's on!!! If your idea is really cool, it might qualify for our funded incubator program - meaning, it might not cost you a nickel to become the next super tech titan. The services we offer also include managing a crowd funding campaign or helping you pitch it to any number of venture capital firms or incubator competitions, whatever makes sense for the idea you have. Put your logo on it before someone else does.
P.S…Feel free to call us! (800)985-9198

Born in Germany, made in Detroit, rewired in San Francisco. Aspiring aeronautical engineer turned 80′s-current entrepreneur via valet parking science, back-alleys and bullets. First to market for 30 years and that’s just the warm up round. Created industries where people thought were none. Exponential technology freak, burner, Jobs/Branson/Musk wanna-bee (but then again who isn’t), racing, yoga, surfing, making great wine and most important, drinking large quantities of it. Married my beautiful and awesome partner (I know what you’re thinking but she is a girl) 8 days after we met and have 3 of the most beautiful children to show for. Favorite line: ‘ When would right now be a good time?’
The Rainmaker. Surprisingly good salsa dancer with 25 years in valet parking, where salsa skiils are underappreciated. Fond of Irish whiskey and good red wine, but not together. Talks a lot (see Irish whiskey), but also listens really well. Dad, Skiier, scuba diver, reader and burner. Looks a bit like Ed Norton, and is not actually qualified to do brain surgery.

Mike spent years as an executive for a Health Club Management firm, before deciding to follow his passion for art & design & transitioning into a creative field.

Cheryl comes from a teaching background, where she focused on teaching children how to take the perfect “selfie” and make the the epic “duck face”. When she realized that her four year old’s weren’t quite developmentally grasping the idea, she decided to go into design where selfies and duck faces are a daily occurrence.
Cheryl resides in Los Angeles, but grew up in the SF Bay Area where she claims all her talents developed. One of them being an undercover ninja and the other collecting and clipping coupons…for ninja related accessories. She has a background in Architectural Design and Early Childhood Education, which combined is “somehow” helping us with our extraordinary design dept.
Cheryl loves to cook and eat right after, but before that, she must take a picture and post it on Instagram…the world MUST know what she eats. They must. She loves to host events where a lot of eating, games, and “flying high fives” happen. She once hosted a uni-brow party to separate herself from the “mustache” crowd. It was pretty awesome. You might occasionally find Cheryl jumping out of planes or running around covered in mud in dangerous obstacle courses. She broke a nail & didn’t even cry about it…much.

Curtis was born way after the time he should have been, he’s a cowboy born in the technology era (his word and honor mean more to him then anything). When he wasn’t riding 2000lb bulls both as an amateur and professional, he found he loved electronics. Gained his electronics knowledge from the Navy and worked 10 years in a place that he can’t talk about fixing “Things”. Had a great opportunity to run the famous “Fountains of Bellagio”. Unfortunately, being in an office just didn’t suite his love for roaming (the range?). Loves going from place to place and getting issues resolved. Carves knowledge and figuring out how things work and fixing them or making them work one way or another. First and foremost, he’s a Dad and husband, golfs, reads when he can (tech and fantasy), can’t wait to find a fishing hole, loves to play sports, running (when his body stops breaking), tinkers in programing, and electronics. One day, he’ll make that cattle-drive if it kills him!

I served in the military for 4years as an infantry man, for the U.S. Army. The division I was with was the 101st Airborne. Battalion was 2nd 327 B Co. First platoon ( No Slack ).
When I got out of the military I went to school to get bachelors degree in computer science – network engineer. I ended up in Washington state going to WSU.
The reason for the move was I received a job offer to work with an automation company. They made the machines that package; McDonalds French fries, Arby’s French fries, StarBuck Coffee etc.
I am a master of photography, a technology guru, wannabe pro gamer, and cat trainer. Previous ventures includes VP of Misc. Stuff and Chief Seat Occupier. People say I am an awesome engineer because I can build a process that gets things done fast and easy, but that’s just me being crafty and lazy.
