    i wonder what the status of his previous startup is…believe they raised ~$1m.

      I understand his dev was 100% outsourced and didn’t go well. The product was sunsetted.

      Too bad because the concept was solid and the founder was absolutely the right guy to pull it off.

      Another painful reminder that a successful consulting CEO does not always translate over to being a successful product CEO.

        Thank you for your thoughts. And, I am on same page with most of them. FamDoo was an experiment to see if loyalty in business could be translated to the family. I still think it can…”rewarding you children for doing the right things”…intellectually and pragmatically it makes sense. I think we overcomplicated the whole process and that is my bad. I take full responsibility. At the same time, we learned and created some pretty incredible things…the Phoenix could rise again. In the interim. we have developed (A360) which is really an amazing little company addressing big time issues in the world. I’m proud of this and our team as we move forward. Who knows what might be next.

        Appreciate your honest feedback. Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy!;)

          It would be a sad day for MN entrepreneurship if you stopped launching new companies, Mark. Keep up the hustle!

    …is there any indication that the law will expand beyond current title III scope of “public accomodations”?
