I'm a biz dev and marketing strategy guy who enjoys taking a concept and finding the markets and business models that create the best opportunity for it to succeed.
I'm collaborative and hands-on, recognizing that it's work and not money that drives a startup to win.
I'm looking for someone with retail expertise. Ideally this would be an entrepreneur who has successfully built a retail startup in the past and is as excited about meeting the needs of "non-expert" wine consumers as I am.
I understand the wine consumer market very well, and am looking at ways to service the largest segment of it: people who enjoy wine but are not enthusiasts.
I've developed a new merchandising and marketing approach that makes it easy for people to identify and buy wines that taste good to them, based on their personal flavor preferences. I have a business plan and investment prospectus and am looking for a partner to complement my business development skills with retailing expertise.
