Apparently based on people I've talked to who are familiar with the tech startup scene, there aren't any dedicated server providers specifically targeting the tech startup market, and if I were to enter the field, I'd be the only player there. I figure since many startups are bootstrapping & are short on cash with which to rent servers, I would be able to make deals with them to be able to extend 12 month rentals at a discount of up to 20% in exchange for equity in their startup, which may or may not equate to an eventual profit.
I've purchased a small 1U server I can use in conjunction with the fast server for backups & tasks other than hosting the dedicated server, and am busy building that. I'm enrolled in Rackspace's CloudU now averaging 80% on exams & will take the CompTIA A+ Certification course this fall at a local community college.
I originally wrote this post on Founder2be with the intention of putting together a team to build the DreamsLinked website. I still am. I have recuited a couple amazing people since I wrote this, and they follow me like a crew follows their captain. I couldn't ask for anything more. My search is not over. I need developers. I need someone skilled enough to build the backend of a mobile app that uses GPS technology to help people discover networks and events around them.
I have front end people ready to get down to business, I need to find backend/API skilled individuals to tie it all together. Message me if interested.

TuneClout is a user/engagement play with an easy path to monetization with a projected revenue of 500m by the end of FY5. Our product is focused around a viral loop we call our “Buy-Share” model. It is an ultra sharable version of music that asks the listener to buy or share a song with 5 friends after the 5th play. There is a high-level industry significance that I would be happy to speak to you about.
While artists are utilizing this new utility for growth and monetization, they are also broadcasting TuneClout Media in the process. Since artists are organizations with thousands of followers, we estimate a mere 150 artists will be enough to broadcast us to millions in less than 30 days. We currently have over 100 artists including 5 record labels registered for Beta. Overall there are over 2m artists in N. America, this number grows annually.
Value proposition to the artist – We make their music go viral
Value proposition to the listener- Get free music by sharing with friends
Both propositions have been validated with users.
