My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
None. I'm doomed. I went camping with my son and a light rain flooded our tent. My best skill will be sacrificing myself for others.
My biggest challenge...
Marketing is always an area I have difficulty with. Curating an image, promoting and keeping that focus are areas best left to others.
I want to invest in...
Concepts that are simple, evolutions of existing ideas. Those 'wow, how has that not been done yet?' ideas. I'm not as interested in moonshots, I prefer down-to-earth, every day ideas and products.
I can be most helpful at...
I've bootstrapped companies, raised funding, lead product development, built and managed teams, dealt with Chinese manufacturing, built scalable AWS front and back-ends and a lot more. I love sharing knowledge as that's the best way to learn the intricacies of any problem, and the solution.
I think we can fix America by...
Forethought with a firm focus on 5, 20 and 100 years from now for the coming technology changes that are going to revolutionize the way people live and, most importantly, work. Preparing for a civilization where AI and robotics truly do take jobs from people, but people are happier for it, not scared.
Hi Alex: A huge shout-out. Long-time mobile app/game marketer, I’ve always struggled with the health/behavioral impact of digital game addiction. I’m a believer, a fan and an investor. Let me know if you’re open to an informal interview about your story, journey and mission.
Alex, sorry I missed the campaign as I was out of pocket these past three weeks with no cell phone and laptop at family ranch unplugging during the COVID Pandemic lock-down. I will definitely look into Pressure Games as it does sound like you have got something unique! Best - Travis
