About Emmanuel

I am a Oracle Business Development Manager working in the Washington D.C.Metro area. I manage a team of 12 awesome BDRs who prospect and generate incremental pipeline for our sales organization.

While things are going great in my line of work, I find that I cannot get rid of this entrepreneurial itch. So much so, that I've been working on a project for the past couple of months and created an MVP, which I plan to launch in a private beta environment in June. Without giving away too much, it is an iOS productivity app that caters to a very niche market. As of now this is not a company and I'm not focused on building a company. I am completely focused on the product and how it can add value to my users. I am on the lookout for a product guy/gal who can join me as a co-founder. I currently work with a freelancer who is an awesome back-end developer. However it would definitely be nice to partner with someone and have a tech resource in-house.

For the reasons above, I have decided that it's time to start networking and meeting with technical folks who have similar aspirations, in an effort to bring this side hustle to life. If you're a experienced iOS and/or Android developer and you live in the Washington D.C. area, please join me!
