Stephen Baxter is becoming a bit of an icon in my hometown of Brisbane.
He’s put in his own time and money to foster the start up scene with his River City Labs co-working space. He is helping a select few start ups with advice and seed funding, plus he has the reputation of a tech entrepreneur who has exited from some big deals, the biggest being the $373 million sale of PIPE networks.
Chris Guthrie is like your every day guy. He’s into video games, he likes computers, he studied marketing at Western Washington University, worked a full time job first as a game tester with Microsoft, and later in sales selling IT equipment. He also happened to be really good at the game Halo 2, so good that he decided to use his skill to create a website about the game to help professional Halo players (yes there are professional video game players!). Thus an internet marketing career began.
