I love being parts of great teams starting and building businesses. For the last 2 years I helped launch Brand.com and its news media platform. That company is doing great and solves major problems for publishers and marketers alike. We built a great management team who have great technology and a proven business model and it is in great hands. So it is time for me to move on to a new passion.
Brand.com was about reaching people all around the world with content. It was focused on the premise that the way brands communicate and the way reporters source stories was not taking advantage of the internet, network effect and new business models.
Another long-term passion is globalizing commerce. Within many markets, ecommerce has revolutionized how consumers gain knowledge, make decisions and purchase goods and services. But, on a global scale, ecommerce has become a complex patchwork of inconsistent solutions that limits the collaborative and scale benefits of the internet. My new company Cloud Commerce is dedicated to addressing that need.
I will publish more when I can but what is great is the fun and excitement of starting with a blank slate and I am happy to have another chance to do that.
