Why your business may not have the right people to succeed in the global tech world
A former Google employee and his business partner are launching a consulting firm in downtown Washington, D.C. The startup will focus on the local needs of tech companies and their employees.
In addition, the two will be involved in building a new headquarters and a business incubator, which will also be housed in the former Google building.
In the meantime, the former company executive, John Eichler, is going to start a consulting business in the District.
Eichlers work experience includes leading Google’s global product and product management teams.
He is also the CEO of an investment firm that specializes in the tech industry, which is why he is so interested in starting a new company.
“I think there’s an opportunity to leverage the power of technology, and technology’s going to help the world, but we’re going to have to work together,” he said.
Erichler is also looking for a new director for his new firm, which he plans to launch in a couple of weeks.
“We’re really hoping that our business and the company we’re working for will grow and thrive as the tech world changes,” he added.
Echlers startup has a similar concept to one that has been running in Silicon Valley, and the former executive has already launched a couple other startups.
“Our focus is on building the best product for the best customers, and I think the city’s great,” he explained.
The two founders, who met when they worked in the same tech industry recruiting firm, are planning to create a consulting group that will have a team of experts in the area of technology and the local tech industry.
Their goal is to offer solutions to problems that have been reported and solved in the local space.
They plan to work closely with local tech leaders and local tech companies.
E.L.H. has a degree in business administration and finance and is currently working in technology for an investment bank.
He currently has a full-time position at a large technology company and is looking for more work.
“The city’s going through a real transition, and as a result, people are being displaced from their homes and have to move from place to place,” he told The Washington Times.
“There are a lot of people out there who don’t want to be relocated, so there’s a lot to learn from these startups, and they’re offering a lot.”
“I’m really looking forward to working with these guys to help us take the business of tech and turn it into something we can be proud of and be proud to call our own.”
Eichers company will also focus on developing a “salesforce” brand, which means it will be focused on helping tech companies sell their products and services in a way that they will appeal to the local market.
Eichenler said that he is also going to take the lead in developing a new website that will be designed to attract the interest of local businesses.
“When I started working with Google, it was like I was a newbie, and we were just starting out,” he recalled.
“After we launched our first company, we decided that we wanted to focus on bringing new technology and expertise to the District and help bring some of that expertise back to the community.”
Echler said he will use the capital raised from his new venture to hire local talent to work on his new website.
EICHERS COMPANY HOSTED IN THE CORNER “We have two employees and we have about five to six different clients in the company,” he noted.
Euchler said they have a lot more potential clients and are still developing their business.
“This is a startup company, so I want to hire as many local people as possible.
We’re really excited to work with these local people and get the most out of them,” he concluded.
“But we’re also really excited about the city and the people who live and work here.
I think we’re in the right place.”
