It Started with a Dropped Business Card

Let me tell you about the day I learned that an opportunity can be as random as a dropped business card.

With three boys to get ready for school, I’m lucky if I have time to grab a quick coffee and to wipe their jammy fingerprints off my pants before I leave for work. Most days I’m OK with that, but occasionally the stomach growling gets too loud to concentrate and I head for the local diner.  It was on one of those days that I happened to look down and spotted a business card with a very recognizable logo lying on the sidewalk.

When you own a small AI company and have dreams of making it a considerably larger one thing you learn is not to waste opportunities.  SO, I picked up the business card for the Enterprise Channel Manager for Microsoft and – I gave her a call.

I must say for a big company they can move pretty fast.  In a couple of days she and one of her colleagues came to see a demo of Text-to-Software and how it works with Microsoft Word.  I think the demo went well.

There will be more announcements about Microsoft coming. But that’s for another blog post.  Stay tuned!
