The Core Team

We’re building the team piece by piece

Management, leadership, product development, data analysts, industry partners, data suppliers, subject experts, designers and those providing moral support and a pat on the back.  We’re building the team piece by piece, but for the very short team, these are the people that are guiding our growth.  If you’re intrigued with what we’re doing, learn more about our career opportunities.


Jim Kalogerakos, President

Jim studied business, but graduated with a degree in Philosophy.  He looks at the world, problems and opportunities differently; making connections where at first there might not seem to be any.  Almost 25 years ago, a friend gave him a free internet account during the very first days of the internet.  He was hooked.  For over 25 years he has married marketing, data and technology in innovative ways to build innovative products, services and business models.  Jim will lead sales, marketing, product and market development while he builds that team that will drive growth.
