Hello everyone. I live in the Silicon Valley and havee been a participant in one start up or another for most of the last 20 years, though I have also had consulting or senior level business developemtn roles with AT&T Labs, Sony Electronics, and Apple Computer.

Today, I am a co-founder of a breakthrough startup that combines 21st Century techniques to the hardware and software of the home security market. Our disruptive technology allows for a highly disruptive business model that will allow us to become a dominant player in the home (residential) security and alarm markets.

The timing of the introduction for this forum is interesting because we have this week begun our outreach to the high tech Angel community for our pre-Series A investment. We are seeking Qualified Investors who have some familiarity with the security alarm market or new home builders and are not afraid of manufacturing, hardware and integrated software.

As a Qualified Investor, you are invited to request more information about our startup.

THIS IS NOT AN INVITATION TO INVEST IN THIS START UP CORPORATION. IT IS ONLY AN INVITATION TO INTERESTED PARTIES TO REQUEST MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR NEW BUSINESS.

Sorry for the yelling, but it is important to point out that we are not advertising for investment, because without the proper security exchange licenses, such an advertisement is likely to be unlawful.

So, if you are curious, please contact me:

Thank you,
Harrison Rose

Currently, I am a growing Recruitment Process Outsourcing organization. The uniqueness of this model lies within my two worlds.

1st- I am a professor at multiple universities in the Chicago area.

2nd- I am a very successful recruiting professional of 16 years.

I am seeking to leverage my access to many, many extremely bright "aspiring recruiters," while scaling out a recruitment model, resulting in economies of scale through specialization.

There are clear cost advantages of this model; compared to any other model I have come across (and I am familiar with all of the major RPO models), while still delivering competitive quality.

However, the model can only be successful with volume.

There are two components to this model that could scale our business out, requiring some investment, and I would be open to discussing this with the right business partner.

Are you that person?

Thanks,

Ideas are not a dime a dozen. Some ideas are important and some are worthless. Some are important in the poltical sphere, some are important in science or in business.

Great idea, Vincent! Since I am trying to grow my business, this is a perfect place for me.
