TeXchange Sept. 2017 – Act! Founder’s New Journey to Development & Fundraising for New Software
September 20 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm| $20 - $75
Mike Muhney, CEO and Co-Founder of VIPorbit Software, began his career with IBM in the “Mainframe Era,” enjoying a very successful sales career. He is best known as the Co-Founder and Co-Inventor of ACT!, the product that literally created the entire Relationship Management Industry.
ACT!—still on the market after 30 years and still the leader in the Windows world—has sold over 10,000,000 copies at an average price of $400, resulting in over $4 Billion in sales, and that doesn’t include the channel partners globally who produced even more revenue through training, implementation and ongoing services.
Today Mike is pursuing the development of a new class of software (applicable to all whose livelihoods depend on their vast networks of relationships–which is just about everyone regardless of what they do) that goes beyond the limited and restrictive market of CRM and, in this pursuit, is once again facing the entrepreneurial nemesis of necessary vulnerability including fundraising.
In January 2015 Mike was recognized in a FORBES article as one of the “25 Professional Networking Experts to Watch in 2015” along with such notables as Tim Ferriss and Keith Ferrazzi.
