“When former hotel manager Cem Erdem launched his first business 16 years ago, he had little help and few ideas on how to start. He’d seen a lot of people in suits walking along the Minneapolis skyway. So, looking to sell Internet services, he decided to pass out postcards to successful-looking people as they walked past.
For the most part, he said, it didn’t work. Now, the CEO of Golden Valley-based software firm Augusoft Inc. is setting up a business accelerator program to help aspiring software entrepreneurs avoid his mistakes. He calls it Project Skyway.”
