I've started my own company with four partners. We've raised $1M from friends and family, and are diving in to see if we can make something happen in the emerging market of Big Data.
The last year or so, I’ve been working part-time with the Ed Lorenzini, Scott, Chase, Bob Nolker, and Beth Doyle starting a new cybersecurity training product-line. With the product-line firmly sitting on a big new deal, the five of us decided to start our own company. Scott Chase and Dr. Bob want to jump into the emerging Big Data market, so one of our first projects is working with Google, to map all the ships on the sea using AIS data collected from Dino Lorenzini and SpaceQuest’s low earth orbit satellites. We’ve got about one year to get something rolling before we’ll need to raise another round of investment.
