VKLiQ is a platform that brings two or more individuals together based on common interests, geographical location, and availability. VKLiQ will also act as an eCommerce platform to buy, sale or trade any items such as text books, bikes or whatever.
Though VKLiQ started as a simple idea, we reached out to our audience of college students from multiple universities. We wanted our users to be connected to those that share similar interests. We wanted to consider the value of their time and location. Whether it was for a study group, campus related activities, private parties or events or a simple book club. Through these focus groups, we cultivated and refined the general need for our mobile app. Once the idea was refined, we returned to the students and presented the final plan. This proved successful. We were to deliver what they had asked for and what excited them about this application. Each group had expressed a large value and need for our product.
VKLiQ is a mobile platform that will deliver smart networking solutions and eCommerce to university campuses. VKLiQ is working with a vetted software development company to ensure a quality product by a qualified and invested group. Launching the product in a unique way will be our first step to capturing the audience. Again, this was identified in our focus groups of college students. Our goal is to visit multiple universities and create unique events that fit individuals and their interests. Events will be free to the user, requiring only that they have the app downloaded and user profile set on their mobile device. VKLiQ will market to all potential users as well by offering internship programs to selected students as they create and post events and market through other social media platforms. There has been a 60% drop of users age 18-24 from Facebook. That is more than 11 million young people since 2011. Yet our industry shows an almost 100% growth in the last 3 years. We currently have no competitors in this market space.

I am passionate about aviation and design. Whether it’s software interaction design, graphic design, or how we serve our customers. I have worked professionally in graphic design, software development and customer service since 1993. My early experience in customer service and the arts shaped my approach to software development, and cemented my belief in the importance of great design paired with great service to the success of any organization.
As an entrepreneur and leader of multiple successful companies I believe in the Results Only Work Environment that champions results above all else. Giving my teams the trust and freedom to do their work their own way and allowing them to manage their own time so they can focus on their results and rewarding them for it creates an environment of confidence, accountability, balance and productivity.
I am excited by change, and the challenge of imagining and building the future.
