About Nick

IMG_2528 (2)

After a handful of years of basically 2 careers – my full time job and a startup – I cut the cord and made the gut-wrenching entrepreneurial leap. In the process I founded Seconds, a mobile payment startup, more recently was General Manager of Coinme, an emerging Seattle bitcoin related startup and also served as director of Business Development at Knotis for almost 2 years. I am now cofounder and host of Founders RAW as well as working on my next venture – Callin’it.

  1. Hi Nick ,
    Saw your post from twitter , just like to advice you few things

    Put contact me page separate on your site, about page should be about you only.
    put re-tweet button under your post.

  2. Great move Nick! Not too many years ago I read a one man show blog which covering all different new web 2.0 websites… it was mashable.com’s Pete Cashmore! I can feel something similar when I read your blog now…

    • Yes, bold move indeed. I am very happy and I know things will work out. So many doors have already been opened in the last few weeks. I believe everyone should risk it to go pursue their dreams.

  3. Came across your blog after somebody retweeted your post about being an influencer. It was a great read and I’ll definitely be following you on Twitter from now on. Looking forward to seeing more good stuff Nick!

  4. Hi Nick: Just read—and chiseled on my forehead —your impactful perspicacity about Instagram founder’s insight to “find the hole and then go do that specific thing? Own that thing. Be known for that thing. And do that one thing world class.”

    Thanx for this excellent piece of background & analysis. I now have a “handle” for my efforts to collaborate with GE on a “perpetual fueling device” for GE’s line of Home Generators: “Co-Founding”. Please Google “WO/2009/079260” for our patent pending.

    Best regards & continued good fortune to you…………………
