eGroup.org.au have asked me to present the background war stories behind GoPC.net It’s very much a personal story of an entrepreneur’s awakening which I hope will be interesting and useful.
GoPC was recognised at Silicom Ventures Summit at Stanford University in 2009 as one of the leading Cloud Computing startups in Silicon Valley. When the GFC hit we elected to self fund and keep control but the last 4 years have been as tough as a long dark winter. This month however I am returning to Silicon Valley to launch a truly ground breaking new technology code-named “Rainmaker”. Rackspace.com invited us to present Rainmaker and have recommended further investation be done. Robert Scoble, a prolific technology evangelist followed by 4,000,000 influential early-adopters, has arranged a video interview with me next month that will launch GoPC like nothing else could.
So what are the lessons learned over the last 9 years that increase our likelihood of success? Where are the risks? Should we raise more capital and lose control after having conquered all the hurdles? This will be an interactive presentation where I’ll be happy to share my own insights and answer questions.
