The founders of iAnswers had a dream. To create a digital marketplace for the exchange of niche information, advise, and answers to web-based projects.
Challenge: Stand up the business
Actions: I was engaged to help realize their concept – to become the leading New Media information exchange. Because of my experience in bringing concepts to reality I was tapped to provide COO-like services. In the capacity I was responsible for the refinement of the investor presentation and implementation of the back-office infrastructure. More specifically, design both the transactional and operational accounting system, as well as, work with the founders to crag the business and sales development plan.
Results: By being able to handle multiple projects, prioritize tasks, and meet deadlines my contribution resulted in the:
- institution of a flexible business system
- founders securing $1.5 million in seed funding
- growth of headcount from 3 to a staff of 10
