Starting a Company in a Lockdown

Welcome to the first blog post on the Techlete Ltd website.

It’s early days, so please bear with me. Most posts will be technical.

Some, like this are about being a business owner.

  • I Hope they will communicate on a personal level.
  • I’d really like it if you took away some value
  • Maybe you’ll learn something
  • Maybe you’ll want to read more, or talk

Business is about people

In past businesses, I’ve followed the “It’s just business mantra”.

I’m not sure anything could be more harmful advice.

Business is about people, about organizing them to come together towards a common goal.

This business specifically is about helping people to get more out of their software, helping their teams to deliver more frequently, things of higher value.

My background

Over the past decade I’ve worked on a range of projects from small businesses, right the way up to government departments.

I’ve trained people who now have careers of their own, run my own business, where I formed a team that helped me amplify my impact.

I had a comfortable job at a startup most recently, where we worked on transforming the future of work. I was excited to learn new things, improve things, deliver value.

I believe I did this, and I met some great people along the way, but it was not what I was looking for.

A Mission

Refining how I can be most helpful in life has been a focus of mine for at least 10 years. It’s helped me to earn more and give more back in terms of value inside and outside of business.

That is what I would like to continue to focus on.

Since starting the business I’ve shipped features and helped people.

Do you need help?

If you are working on software and it’s not shipped in 3-18 months, or longer let me know. I can help!

If you are working on software and your motivation is dead, but you are still willing to be engaged and active, let me know. I can help!

If you are forced to work with software or vendors that ruin yours, and others day. Let me know. I might be able to help!

If you’re an established business with difficult software problems, let me know. I can help!

If your servers or software keep crashing, and you don’t know why, but would like to fix that… I can help!

If you suffer from things that “work on my machine”, but not for your customers… I can help!

If you need to integrate systems, internally or with third party providers for payments, channel integration, communications, editorial or creative control, complex systems including MRP, ERP, HR… I can help!

If you just want to work on cool things, you have a budget but would like to make sure you work on more cool things than mundane. Let me know I can help!

Anything Else?

I’m also looking to build a team.

Right now, I need more contracts to do that. But if you are looking to help others to amplify their impact… I might be able to help.

It’s not just software people. I’ve actually helped unemployed people with no history of software development to ship multi-million-pound revenue software in under 3-months.

Have a great day.
