You have never met two people who can do so much with so little. We are the very definition of a lean start up. We have received no outside funding. We aren’t literally working out of a garage, but it’s close.
Despite this, we have built the core platform for hosted biometric matching as a service and we are in private beta testing with our first product, WanderID. We are currently preparing to train first responders in the Central Texas area and do an open beta test in by the end of the summer. Once we have traction in the marketplace, we intend to go after funding.
We are able to do this because 1) we saved our pennies before quitting our day jobs, 2) we have understanding families who are willing to simplify their lifestyles so we could do this and 3) we are doing biometrics-related consulting for the defense industry part time.
