Paul Bissett, CEO of WeoGeo, a geo-spatial content management service for surveyors, engineers, cartographers and scientists, knows there is a vast market for his product. Some people have described his product as an iTunes for maps because it has better indexed maps which has reduced customer storage,  hosting costs, and saved thousands for businesses.   Bea.gov reports (as of 2002) a $175B demand for architectural services and IDC quotes a $145B worldwide demand for mapping. WeoGeo can help with that and so much more. To that end, Paul moved his family and much of his team across the US, from Tampa to Portland, in search of a business community that fosters growth for entrepreneurs and start ups.

But in these tough economic times when entrepreneurial pursuits are more challenging than ever, where does Paul find his gumption? Being acutely aware that “this is one of the hardest things to do in the whole wide world” is a start. Next he recognizes the need to “bring his ‘A’ game everyday”.  Lastly, and perhaps most astutely, Paul thinks all entrepreneurs need the “ability to deal with adversity with aplomb”. Clearly his outlook is working for him. On March 12th Paul and the WeoGeo team earned one of the two top prizes at Angel Oregon, $80,000 in funding.

The grand prize winner is DesignMedix.
