Shawn Kalin's Summary


A blurb about me...

I got my feet wet in the IT business in Palo Alto, CA during the 'dotcom' boom, where I learned the intricacies of successfully scaling startups. Involvement with PayPal and Keyhole (Google Earth) were good examples.

Take away from the DotCom experience:

'You can be very good - but timing is everything'.
It's still true today.

From those heady days, I've constantly refined my skills in business models & development, capital raising, disruptive sales and marketing and a lot more detailed below.

All the Best!
