Patrick Dolan

I am the founder of three information technology services companies. We hosted and managed client infrastructure (mostly mainframe computers referred to as cloud computing today) for middle market companies throughout the west coast initially and then nationally with data centers from California to New York. I have been involved in every aspect of starting, running and exiting a business. My strength and background is sales and marketing. Prior to founding these companies, I was in sales for several technology companies, I also worked in community banking for many years (technology related). I have a great respect for entrepreneurs and those that are willing to start a business.

Words of Wisdom:

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” – Nolan Bushnell, Entrepreneur
