Eric Delisle – Launching a Security Product from C-L;A-B;M-Z+%
As a serial Entrepreneur, Eric B. Delisle, CEO at DigiThinkIT, Inc., loves projects and learning.
Over the last 25 years Mr. Delisle has developed a broad range of experience from putting the first Virtual Reality Systems in Disney World, personally raising millions for his “dot com” during the “dot com” boom, doing market research and channel distribution working at MTV Viacom/Networks, being a consultant to the National Science Foundation (NSF) on SBIR funding proposals, designing products and traveling to and manufacturing those products in China, in addition to numerous other ventures.
Whether he is architecting a business model, raising millions from investors, creating a brand, negotiating contracts, building a team, or creating a marketing campaign and developing a sales pitch for an unknown product, Mr. Delisle, has successfully blazed most trails an Entrepreneur needs to learn. In addition to his successes, Mr. Delisle, is usually quick to point out to budding Entrepreneurs that he has failed more times than most people will ever try in business. The secret, he says, is to learn, pivot, and never give up. Today, his way of “giving back” is mentoring other Entrepreneurs to help them achieve their own dreams.
Currently, Mr. Delisle, invests in real estate and startups, and spends most of his time running DigiThinkIT, Inc., a custom software, web development, and consulting company in Downtown Orlando, FL.
Specialties: Web Based Technology and Business Software Systems, Branding and Identity, Fundraising, Marketing, Business Process Automation, Sales Training, SEO & SEM through Relevant Content Marketing, Investing, and almost anything that takes an idea from a napkin to the marketplace.
Funny title? Sometimes the Entrepreneurial path is funny, too.
I would do a talk about how we launched a new Security Product, (a privacy and anonymity tool for consumers), from A – Z. Unfortunately, that isn’t always how life happens.
What I will talk about is how to spot an idea, get some basic validation for it’s commercial viability, and then walk you through the process of considering how (or if) you can turn your idea into a product or company.
Next, we will cover some specific actions you can take to move your idea forward towards commercial success, billions of dollars in your fat pockets, and sexy ladies (or dudes) hanging out the windows of your pimp ride!
