A few words about me
I founded Traffikoo in January 2005 to provide internet marketing services and ecommerce solutions. Since inception Traffikoo has sent around $500m in new business to its customers (mostly ecommerce stores, online services, and SaaS companies). Traffikoo also operates some ecommerce businesses directly, as well as ReferDigital, an affiliate network and marketing partner management platform, Addue, a suite of internet marketing tools, and 123ORM.com, an online reputation management tool.
Other side-projects I've built include Relay by Foundry Technologies, a wifi-connected IoT display which can be set to display text and images of the user's choice, controllable from anywhere via a simple web interface, PublicEmails.com, an easy-to-use blogging platform which allows posting of blog posts via email with no prior setup required, and Classient.com, a class booking platform.
Formerly I founded Engim, a venture-backed wireless LAN semiconductor company in Boston, Massachusetts, and served as its Chief Technology Officer. Engim was known for its patented high speed and resolution analog-digital and digital-analog converters, wideband 2.4GHz and 5Ghz RF front-ends, and high performance digital baseband processing chips.
I am interested in angel investment opportunities in my areas of expertise... online marketing, ecommerce, SaaS, online marketplaces and communities, IoT and related areas.
