One day, after nine hours of intense frustration, a beaten down entrepreneur from Atlanta, GA had had enough. His task had been simple: he wanted to better promote himself professionally by turning four blog posts he’d written and a couple more he’d found online into a simple, cool-looking email he could send to business colleagues. Using the current tools available it had become mission impossible, and four months later FlashIssue was born.
FlashIssue makes it quick and easy to design marketing emails, even if you’re not a marketing manager. It’s based on the premise that you shouldn’t need a PhD in HTML formatting to get a great email out the door. We built the FlashIssue platform to help you discover, organize and package information (aka content curation) for online marketing in an insanely easy way. When you can stop having to worry about what to write in emails and reach people you want to influence in a flash, you save time and increase traffic to your business. What’s not to like?
I moved to the US eighteen years ago after yomping it around the world with nothing but a backpack and an entrepreneurial spirit. I settled in Atlanta, GA with the backpack and $267 in cash. A new obsession quickly ensued – growing early stage technology companies. The first venture I co-founded was Netzip Inc, and it was acquired and morphed into one of the first legal music subscription services prior to Apple's iTunes. After that I co-founded a cloud-based phone provider called Vocalocity, which was acquired by Vonage in 2013. Between then and now I've run an educational start-up and helped a number of other early stage companies grow. When I am not working, I enjoy cycling, cooking and spending time with my wife and two young boys.
