New Year, New Business
Having had a particularly lazy Christmas in France with the in-laws, I have spent a lot of time collecting my thoughts on where I want to go with my business. I have been a contractor since September 2005 and I feel now is the time to expand my operations.
My vision for the future is that we would have 2 main objectives. The first is to continue as I am at the moment, providing development services of web apps, games, tools, & e-learning to other new media companies. I would like to think if another company needed to build a kick ass app for their client, they would consider Team Cooper to build or help build it. The second objective would be to spend time developing our own products.
My recent experiences with AS3 have shown me that there isn’t really that much you can’t do in terms of building web apps and I really like the idea of being a company that develops a “thing”. So my basic thinking is that I’d like to build something useful that people / organisations would want to buy. The question is what? I’ve had lots of ideas, I just need to decide on the one to go with.
Obviously this means I need to get some extra talent on board, there’s only so much code one person can write (If anybody out there is interested in joining me, please get in touch). Office space is also going to be a requirement. Lots of thought needs to go into how everything is going to work but I’m confident I can put together a good plan of action.
One thing’s for sure, I’m very excited about what lies in wait in 2008.
