Hi. I'm Jim Brown.

From the US Marine Corps to marketing and sales to traveling around the world for a year and even a stint in pro wrestling, I’ve done a lot. That said, I believe there’s still plenty more to go.

See the companies I'm involved with

Founder. Salesman. Marketer. Investor.

I've founded or co-founded eight companies — some successful, others not.
I've sold services and software and also consulted companies on how to increase revenue on the internet.
Most recently, I've begun looking for investment opportunities.
