This is a tale of a current software startup and all that it’s done and still doing to raise capital. This talk will not sugarcoat anything, it’s the story of the real life startup grind. The company I’ve riased this money for is Badu Networks, a tech company that develops wifi solutions, and it has been around for 2.5 years and has raised $4.5M all from family, friends, and Angels without having any revenue. We’re nowhere near being successful.

Hear what’s worked and what hasn’t. This is real life, right now stuff!

Join us at the CSUF Startup Incubator on August 10 to see this awesome talk.

More about the speaker, Tony Wong:

Tony has a unique set of skills and proven accomplishments based on a broad range of functional roles and industries. He has contributed to companies as small as Firmgreen, Inc. (alternative fuel) and Morphotrak (bio-metric systems formally called Printrak) to large Fortune 125 companies that includes Apple Computer, HP, Sun Microsystem, Gateway Computer, Black & Decker, and 3M.

In 2013 Tony authored and published a career advice book for young and mid-career professionals to help them mooove ahead, soooner. The book is called “Mooove Ahead! of the corporate herd”. The ebook version is available at Amazon.com, Apple iBookstore, Barnes&Noble.com, and the paperback version at Lulu.com. All proceeds continues to be given to charities (that deal with helping kids, pets, and curing cancer).

Tony recently co-founded a software startup, Badu Networks, Inc. Badu has developed technologies (patent-pending) that will push (and hopefully disrupt) several industries. Badu can significantly and easily increase wireless (cellular, WiFi) throughput.
